It's a nice little park in the Flatiron District by the Flatiron Building. Stop, relax, stroll, & people-watch.

After visiting the Flatiron building and grabbing a coffee this was a nice place to relax. There are plenty of trees which shaded us from the warm autumn sun. Plenty of squirrels to keep you occupied too.

We popped along to these gardens after viewing the famous Flatiron building. Beautiful gardens, well kept and worth popping in to have a walk around.
