It is a useful little park close to Lygon Street cafes and take away restaurants. There are shady and sunny seats, some public toilets, a fountain, bandstand, and some grass under large old trees. It is free in an area that can cost you money.

Lygon Street
If you want real parmesan, cut from the block, grated
over your pasta with a twist of style, this is the
place. Until recently, this neighbourhood was home to
the notorious ‘Carlton Crew,’ a pseudo mafia who
started their day with a local espresso. They are
gone, but the espresso still runs strong in this
Little Italy which has something for everyone.
