Tips for you
A quiet place to reflect -- very green, situated on a hill. Provides very nice views of the city. Its hard to believe you are in a metropolitan city. Easy to find from the Peace Park, with an escalator situated on one end of the park.(i guess north end). Definitely a place to go to see views of the city.
