Well maintained and quiet place to spend good time with family. If you go during weekends it mostly congested with wedding teams taking photos. Also a very large colony of bats are resident in some of the trees.

We passed by this public park while walking in the old city. Nice place to rest and relax and maybe pose for some pictures with lovely green trees around. We also saw many bats flying there during morning

Another disappointment on our walk around the city, this lovely garden was closed up with every gate chained and padlocked. From what we could see through the railings, it looked beautiful. If only we could have gotten inside. :(

After many years of neglect and degradation the garden is back. Major works and money were spent and it is a nice spot to find peace and quiet. Watch out for pretty thieves.
