Went here recently and was very impressed. Big chess pieces outside for playing my favorite game. Unfortunately they were erecting a giant platform (probably for a concert?) right in front of the four major statues.

Great area where you can see the statues of the Reformers. The wall looks amazing and has recently been restored. Would love to see it at night. Nice area to sit if the weather is nice too.

The park was easy to find. I took a tram no 15 from Carnavan station going to Palettes and got of at Cirque. From there its about 5 minutes walk tops. The park is nice and easy,with benches all over.
