It has lots of trees and shade, which would be behind the photographer. There's a really neat grove of trees interspersed with benches. Great for eating lunch, taking a girl, etc... From an urbanist perspective, the open space is pretty valuable in a neighborhood of highrises that block out the sun, and this park has relatively untouchable access to sun because the south border is North Pier.
Architecturally speaking, we'll never have huge trees on this park anyway because there's a garage underneath it. There probably isn't enough soil depth to support gigantic trees.
