  • Fantastic place to hangout or to watch live concert. It use to be prison but now a #garden You can see some relics around. I love the water side and the goose playing with the water. The green atmosphere is amazing. I also love the stage for live concert. The food stalls are great to have some taste.
  • Nice place. Best visited on Fridays. When you get there, as for Guinness gold and thank me later
