The park’s main attraction is the Belfast Wheel, a bronze map of the city which was donated by the New Belfast Community Arts Initiative. The 12 segments of the wheel contain a design from different community groups, with each piece representing the organisation’s home district. The park is beside a Moravian church, dating from the late 1800s.
