We came especially to sit and eat lunch in this secret nice park. It's small but was worth the walk. We took some lunch from another great place (Paris Baguette) and just sat and enjoyed the waterfall sound.

What a lovely little park. Perfect for a sit-down with a drink or snack from the food stand. The waterfall was beautiful and so relaxing to sit and watch. It's an amazing little place considering it's right in the middle of so many buildings. You...More
