This is a hidden tourist gem. Worth multiple visits. Probably because it is not well publicised, it is un-crowded and a peaceful oasis.

This location was a bit of a trek from our apartment, but absolutely worth the walk! It was one of our favorite spots in the city. The green space is absolutely incredible! Not quite the "city views" one would expect from a rooftop but beautiful...More
