I discovered this by chance heading back to the hotel to get something in the evening. It made me late but was worth watching.

When we arrived, they were changing the flower beds, we were so lucky, otherwise the flower beds would be bare. A great quiet and peaceful ground to rest, to meditate, to stroll. Very well maintained, great for families.

A very well kept and pretty square in Blenheim. A nice area to sit quietly and watch the world go by. Worth a visit at night when the water fountain turns into different colours.

Very nice and well maintained park area around the monument close to the city centre. A good place for just sitting down and relax.
