Welcome to Another World
Walking through this tunnel is like walking into another world. You leave the city behind. There are usually families picnicking, people walking their dogs, friendly games of cricket, and of course lovers holding hands.
The park goes on and on. It’s a great place to wander around and lose yourself for a little while in nature.
