  • Amazing little spot. Lots of extremely creative mosaic sculpture. Some of it still in progress. There's a bit of shade in the park in case it's hot. The "public restroom" is a capacious port-a-potty. Plenty of nearby on-street parking, at least when we were there.
  • It's very creative and environment friendly park. It's a nice place to go for a walk and have some beautiful pics. Though it is small, it's interesting. Some items are still under construction. Don't expect something very great. It's small and interesting. You can spend 30 min to 1 hour hardly. The art work they did is great. Better to go in day time. It's more inside the old city and might not be safe to be alone after dusk.
