The footpath from the garden leads to a small hill, which provides ample space of green grass to hold picnics and partake in any outdoor games that visitors enjoy. On the side of the park is a staircase that leads to a small beach below. The beach provides visitors with the option of going swimming, playing sports and sun tanning. This location provides visitors with a unique opportunity to incorporate quite a few nature inspired activities into their picnic plans.
