Description (see definition): An inclined glacial course, 7 mi long and 1 mi wide, in the E part of Ross Island. The feature is partly framed between the S elements of the Kyle Hills and Guardrail Ridge, as it descends ESE from 2600 m near Mount Terror to 200 m near Allen Rocks. The glacial surface is relatively smooth and affords an unobstructed route between the Cape Crozier area and Mount Terror. The name is allusive and refers to a public place for taking a leisurely walk. Named by Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names (US-ACAN), 2000.
