A quiet spot to feed the ducks and other birds that congregate around the park. There are plenty of them, willing to help you finish off your lunch.

Would be a lovely place to sit and do nothing when the weather is warmer. Very well kept. Excellent playgroup for kids. Only drawback is there is no adult sized swing.
