There is always something going on during each weekend, especially in the summertime. Green space to picnic, amphitheatre for free concerts, many types of food festivals, a small skating rink in the winter and loads of people. A beautiful vantage point to see the waterfront.

with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
