I had heard on the news about this place: plenty of money offered to improve it, but cah rejected by the city. What a strange decision. UTG is best avoided. THis is no place to bring your family. Go and find another park.

Centrally located stretch of greenery with some nice floral displays. Popular for picnickers in the summer and locals taking a breather. At various points in the year they often have circuses, balls In a marque and even art and fairs in this Central Park.

This garden in the city centre is great for picnics and relaxation. It is especially great during the summer months. Although recent news suggests it is not very safe, so I would encourage you remain highly vigilant while here.
