The tranquility here in opposite to the busy town is a welcome change. Inside the park you can take the pad up elephant mountain and see the park and town from above.

Tranquil setting in a large and restful park. Great place to stroll on a lazy afternoon. Lots of scenic photo opportunities to capture the beautiful snowy mountains.
