Why locals love it

This land has had thousands of years of religious influence. There have been nunneries, churches and cloisters here since the 16th century. Today it serves as a recreational island with the largest open air pool in BP, an open air theater, sports center, hotels and ruins from another time. Locals love the running trail that circles the island.

Why you should visit it

Check out the Centennial Memorial of 1973 as well as a tiny zoo, a small Japanese garden that has a fish pond, 'The Music Well' which is for outdoor concerts, The 'Music Fountain' that has light and sound shows in the summer and the Water Tower that has a lookout point.

Special tip

Check out all of the above but also take a moment to sit in the park and just be.

The best place to walk, ride a bike, swim or have some sun bath! Enjoy watching turtles and squirrels there:)
