This is a lovely park at the end of town - just past the museum. Larger than the park in the center of town, a nice place to relax and enjoy the breeze.

Really was a nice park and it was amazing to see all the birds that come in on a evening. But of course, because of the amount of birds, there is a lot of bird mess and has a horrible smell. But other than that,...More

Except for the moment when the thousands of parrots arrive to spend the night (between 5 and 6, very worth watching from the church tower!, small entrance fee), visiting this square is not at all a pleasant experience due to the very strong smell caused...More

It’s quite the spectacle and an amazing phenomena to see these beautiful birds come settle in for the night. Amazing how thousands of them accommodate one another... so much to learn from them as humans.

It is a must to see at least one night. Unbelievable - can't believe that many parrots show up at one time. The sky is full of them - then they swoop into the trees.

As written by dozens of others the park is filled with returning birds at dusk making a great amount of bird sounds as they fly around the surrounding area.

Good place to hang out and absorb the local life yet the park could use an upgrade the benches are falling apart. If you are there at sundown you are in for a cacophony of noise as the parrots go back and forth between the...More
