  • Cool place. There's always something going on here, whether it's a cultural event, or art displays/performances. Easy to get to by transit, and near the lake.

No matter the season, there is always what to do, whether enjoying shows, vendors, special exhibitions or just the lapping sound of the water, this is one of the most beautiful locations within the city.
