schoolkids were in the park laughing at the pigeons as they sat on their backpacks and arms and eating out of their hands too. We laughed as they yelled and ran from them.. But you could tell they were enjoying themselves. Stayed there almost 45 minutes watching them..

Warning: The birds can see food from a mile away. If you chose to buy a bag of corn kernels from one of the vendors standing outside the park, know that that birds will surround and maybe land on you. Our twelve year old son had a wonderful time.

The area is small but if you like feeding the birds you will enjoy the area. It is directly next to Christ chapel. The kids would enjoy it.

We visited with the kids and had a blast feeding the pigeons. There are vendors just outside the park selling feed. Don't bring popcorn to feed the pigeons, they don't like it. It is nice and shady on a hot day.

Nice area to relax and let the kids run off some steam chasing the pigeons. Close to shopping and great restaurants!

This park was full of pigeons. They had holes in the wall next to it where they nest. The views are good from here as well.

This is such a beautiful site, but disappointing to see that the city does not take pride of it. Still}, the surroundings are beautiful to see!

This is a cute shaded park with some beautiful views of the water and surrounding for 2. But it is overrun by pigeons. Which make it a little bit unclean and annoying.
