The park named The Grounds has enclosed seating areas for two to four people spaced apart from their neighbors. Its variety of entertainment programs include live performances as well as the outdoor cinema.

The park’s other health measures include online pre-registration, health declarations, temperature checks, mandatory face masks, and hand sanitizer at each entrance and exit.
