Bastion Hill is an artificial mound made between 1857 - 1859 as part of the fortification. The park around is very nice with walking paths and a canal, and there are several statues and monuments in the park. It is situated just outside Old Town, and near the Freedom Monument, so it can be nice to have a walk in this park, or sit on one of the benches by the canal, after a lot of sight seeing.
