"Though the place would do well to have better maintenance but it's undeniably the center for all things outdoors and the hub for most, if not all fitness enthusiasts of the region The Plus *Plenty of space *Nature more than makes up for the limited maintenance *Pets are allowed! (A big one for me) as well as cycles, skates..you name it (just be mindful to not bother the Yogis😏) The Minus *Low maintenance *Late evening crowds may get a bit rowdy, the same as in most public parks *No washroom or drinking water amenities Having a considerable area under it, it also serves as the venue for several events throughout the year ranging from official ones as the Independence Day to exhibitions, fairs and festivals."
