Went for a walk with a friend and my dog in this wonderful Park. Saw peacocks, turtles sunning on rocks, pair of ravens, equestrian center, children having an outdoor classroom learning experience. Loved it!

Majority of the group areas have shade. Some however have none. There are lots of bees at the park that are attracted to sweets such as soft drinks.
