Nestled in the heart of the city, Parker’s Piece is one of the smaller commons in the city which is why it often gets overlooked by holidaymakers and tourists. However, if you’re looking for a private little getaway to admire the flowers of spring and spend some quiet reflection time in the sun, there’s no place better. If you’re hoping to get a little more active and work up a sweat, the flat grassy field is also a perfect spot to play your favourite sport. Bring along a ball and some friends and get a game going.
