This is a nice place for an after dinner stroll. There are some cool statues/sculpture. It's also near some shopping and restaurants and near market square. But honestly, there isn't a lot to see here. It's really just a small park with a walking path.

I do believe where the cruise ports you just keep walking west a couple of blocks and you will be in the middle of Esplanadi. Lots of shops, snacks and salons. Public market at the port, too. Local food and art/crafts. Enjoy!
