This statue of Oscar Wilde is colourful. The park is a lovely place to take a walk or sit and people-watch. Worth a side-trip to see this!

Such a lovely space to visit. We were lucky enough to go when it was sunny, the statue is fascinating. The little park just behind is lovely and was ideal for our three year old.

This statue of Oscar Wilde is colourful, like the man himself. He used to live nearby so its a very appropriate location. The park is also a lovely place to take a walk or sit and ponder the world.
