What a neat place to visit. I went with my nana and we sat in the sun for a couple of hours watching the people and different activities going on. A lovely afternoon.

There is not really a lot to see on this square except a few nice art pieces. Through the civic square and the seabridge you have easy access to the ‘waterfront’ area.

This Civil Square is close to the Central Library and it is surrounded by government buildings and protected from off-street sound, so it is a very quiet place to relax and chill. Also, many people come to eat their lunch to this place, since it...More
