Went there with 4 kids. They were really excited. A must see in the city. It's just next the historic district that is worth a visite as well.

Cam across this imposing statue whilst out for a walk. It's 4 meters high, but they dont know who it is. Good photo opportunity.

Little to see as it is mostly covered up. This is likely only to be for a while and in summer it may well be good to see but we saw little of it.
