Nice park but no real information was available. Steps leading up to it can be treacherous. But the views of city are worth it. Plenty of small traders plying stuff.

It’s a park where you can have a great view of the city and it’s easy to get there. If you are downtown it’s definitely a great place to spend at least one hour or more walking and appreciating the view

There might be a fair number of steps to reach the top of this hill, which on a hot day isn’t great, but it’s totally worth it. Whether you climb from the south or north side there’s plenty to admire on the way, although the...More
