City Centre Gardens - exit gate

I've always wanted to return here with my camera. This is City Centre Gardens, which is hidden away next to Cambridge Street. Centenary Square and buildings like The REP hide it from public view.

 

When I got here, it started lightly raining, and I got some rain drops on my camera (I wiped them off).

 

Glad no one was in here this time. Previously I saw young people in it (last year) and got put off coming in here.

 

The gardens felt nice and peaceful (and fresh). Just like the Peace Garden. Even with a bit of rain it felt peaceful here.

 

The exit gate to the gardens from Cambridge Street (behind this view is a roundabout and King Edwards Road).

 

Cambridge Street actually continues past the Civic Estate and meets King Edwards Road near the NIA.
