I thought this would have more figures like portrayed in the picture, there was only one that I saw. The ducks and the birds were a pleasure though.

After some days of rain when the sun comes out finally, it is a perfect place to sit. Very peaceful and full of life. Also a nice detail that all the plants have a little sign explaining their name.

I visited in winter but the Camelia's smelled very nice. The park is very well maintained and documented. Large selection of beautiful trees and plants. Would love to visit in spring or summer!

Lovely, interesting garden, family friendly, cafe. Only down side were the homeless/drug addicts sleeping on the benches. Not a problem, people were seeing to them, but distressing.

This the north end of the park has lots of plants and greenhouses on display, which is interesting. However, the fun comes as you explore South, where the sleeping creature lays and various fun benches are scattered around. This park is big and has lots...More

Memories of my visit to the garden is a goat jumping up on me and started to eat my shirt. It had a good mouthful before I was able to get it off. The garden is full of nice plants and the goat petting area....More

A pleasant walk along the green line will bring you to the Botanic Gardens. I enjoyed the garden of poisonous plants, ranking each plant on a scale of 1 to 5. There is also a garden of plants that existed before humans walked the planet....More
