A perfect place for a stroll or to watch the magnificent fountain. This has a cycle of 8 minutes variation, and at night changes colour frequently. The crosses commemorating Anzac Day were beautifully painted and baned, orovibpding a very moving experience for us.

By night the fountain is lit up with changing colours very pretty. It is a small park perfectly placed to pick up lunch in town and sit under a tree to eat it.
