It may have been the rain that made me pass this little park with just a glance at the fountains. The seaside path was more interesting than the fountain park.

Flowers, stylish Fountain, nice pathways, view of the sea and boats make this a wonderful park to stroll or sit down and watch birds fly around. Very peaceful. The fountain with water cascading down forming a water curtain is especially pleasing .
