Visited during June 2018 and the area is absolutely lovely. There are several boutique shoppes, restaurants, and hotels. The walkway and cycle path around the lake is lovely.

Great location to sit and sip a drink while listening to street buskers and just watching the world go by and maybe even enjoying an ice cream. A great place to while away an hour or so in the evening.
