The park is nice, but it needs many improvements. The tiny river smells like bathroom waste, pushing a baby stroller was a bit tricky on the broken grounds at some places, etc. In short, it needs more care.

Neatly kept park for peaceful enjoyment. The flowers weren't out as it was the wrong season but the park is well maintained and a pleasant area for a rest. The children's area looks like a lot of fun incorporating a Ferris wheel and a little train. The museum is very interesting with many photos of years gone by. Well worth... More

We visited the park with our two children, aged 9 & 10. You have to buy tickets to enter the park. There seems to be a scam going at the ticket office, where the posted price does not match the ticket price. The price for foreign adults is R300 each, but the children's admission price is not indicated. We gave... More

All this park needs is some TLC and a work crew to clean it. Since foreigners pay for entry that does not seem too difficult.

This lovely park is totally an English Victorian-era creation. It's been looked after though, so despite its age it still does what it was designed for - providing a pleasant walk amongst flowers and trees.

As we were showing interest in the plants we were approached by the Superintendent who gave us a personal tour for three quarters of an hour, showing us things we never would have spotted for ourselves. An enthusiast for the Royal Horticultural Society he was delighted to share his expertise.

Not a big park, but it is very nice to walk around and relax while you read a book/the newspaper. Every is 300 rupees for an adult (foreigner) which includes every to a small museum at the entrance gates showing historic photos of the town and tea plantations.

A nice piece of English gardening with local plants. You have to pay and indeed a lot more than the locals. I prefer to see that as a little contribution to the maintenance of the park. After all, it's only 300 RS (20 SEK/about 2€).
