It's a nice place to play cricket. It is one of the ACA grounds where league games are played. Because of water logging, the only drawback is you can't play a game on both sides. Only on one side, you can play. It's heaven for batting. Many people come to this spot to use their drones and helicopters. On this level, amateur and talented photographers do their photoshoots. It's a good place for friends to hang out. There are no facilities for rest rooms. They have car parking.

Pleasant grassy area with jungle gym, swings, field areas for baseball and soccer/football. There's a public fountain of water where you forget to bring your own drink. It's beautiful indeed.
