I was fascinated by the relics from the past on the wall. They chose a good colour for the wall too because it looks great with the green grass in the park.

@JBar, I'd like to hear more about spot. What is this all about? What are those relics? Can't really see even enlarged. What does Mondrian refer to... not Piet the artist, does it? What does the plaque say? And why would people come to sit here on these benches? It all looks quite interesting and thought out.

Francisca, this was an industrial area that has been gentrified. The plaque tells you about the history of the area and the relics from an old factory roof. You can read a bit more about it on my original post on Waterloo @ Sydney - City and Suburbs This apartment block is actually called Mondrian and the link with the artist probably lies with the design of the building. These high density redeveloped areas often have these sorts of small parks beside them and this one also features a small cafe at the other end.
