  • Not the same as it used to be. Very disappointing. Lawn are much overgrown, mayor's garden an absolute disaster, the rockery is now a disaster. The bicycle race track is still there. Obviously not maintained but still usable. If only the city could revert to its former glory. The only cricket oval in the world with a tree within the field .
  • It's good for time during holidays or weekend
