Very few flowers and a lot of walking. The trees are nice The rose garden is dead. The desert plant area was worth while

It´s a pleasure place with nice gardens and lakes in the middle of the city. You can see little animals - monkeys, beautifuls birds - and tropicals trees. It´s a good option to walk and children play.

I agree that morning is best as it can get hot. There are picnic tables in the children's park, but those fill up quickly and people leave their stuff there to claim a table. You can't sit on the grass outside of the... More
