When we went, they had beautiful sculptures made of recyclable materials. They have the very rare corpse flower which did not happen to be in bloom. There were many, many palm trees that I had never seen or heard of before. The flowers are amazing....More

A great place to spend some time and get a bit of exercising. There is always something interesting and the flora changes throughout the year. Check out the new Color Burst.

The rose garden should be in full bloom, educational and fun children’s garden, and the miniature train is a must, outside in the summer. The glass arboretum is lovely, especially if it is beastly hot! You can take a tram... More
