Not much to say about this place, I think it is not among on the major attractions list of the city, nor did not see many tourists here. There's a few bars, some meeting place but nothing worth going specifically to see this attraction.
A good choice in the area to hang out, about 5 minutes walk away from the Park. The square seem to feature some nice bars. You can find some good restaurant on Rue de l'Enseignement, opening from the same square.
