Serenity at its finest, greenery at eye-sight, no matter where you lay your eyes, you will find a natural splendour taking your breath away; indulge in mother earth’s blessings, away from the tech modern life!

Picnics and long walks were made for Castle Park, it’s “the place” to spend a whole day enjoying the greenery, take a photograph or two for IG, and even enjoy the ducks swimming heavenly with their flat feet, not caring about anything in the world.
