I spent only a few minutes here as I had to catch a train later on. It was early in the morning and I felt very well among the runners, walkers and sculptures!

visited many times this lovely park- is huge and I dont think I ever walked throughout the whole park. There is even a small zoo in it and an outdoor swimming pool, great for summer. What is a must is their lights exhibition in January.

Hi, this is good for a full day if you like nature and want it quiet, it can also become crowded but there is always a quiet area, it is huge. Nice with a camera.
