Beautiful place to spend half the day. Gorgeous, immaculately kept gardens with a beautiful array of plants and flowers. We’ll sign posted. Excellent facilities including cafe and playground with a maze. Friendly staff who educated my kids about nature. Loved it and will be back!
A very beautiful place to spend afternoon with kids and family. Free to entry at the time of this review. No pets, skating, or ball games allowed. As they will damage the garden. Toilets were very clean. Look for different types of ducks and birds plus giant eels in the water. You can take some green peas to feed the birds. Best place to take pictures in winter was the colourful cactus.
