Stopped by on a Sunday night. There was a music performance in the park and vendors selling things. Seems like a happening area of Fort Cochin.

Basically not much here but you walk around in combination with seeing the Chinese fish nets, fish markets, and walking around to see the beach and harbor views and take in the air.
