We had a walk down the river and stumbled upon this place. My daughter loved the little park, and it was a nice break from the busy Buchanan St

There are so much to see but walk around the Peoples Palace and see the magificent Doulton terracotta water fall full of history. Then, wander over to the suspension bridge. Of course, you can go inside the Peoples Palace museum. Stunning area.
