Very Beautiful location in the center of town. Many planned events to participate or spectate. Walking distance from most hotels close to the water or up the hill

The botanical gardens were beautiful and peaceful. My husband and I really enjoyed walking around them. Only downfall is that they didn't have more informational signs along the way...we really like learning about the local flora. We were surprised at how few tourists were enjoying the gardens while we were there.

The Botanical Gardens was a very clean and picturesque place. My wife and I spent a leisurely Sunday evening strolling through the grounds enjoying the sights. Families were seen picnicking within the designated areas and it was as if man was at peace and in harmony with nature.

If you're looking for an area to get away from it all then this is the place. Great for family picnic or by oneself to relax. Lovely and clean.

Nice for an evening scroll or a walk through with that special someone. I don't recommend going when it's rainy though - your chances of getting wet will be very high as there are few huts in this large park.

Excellent historic and scenic spot to chill, picnic and relax alone or with loved ones. Children love the wide open spaces to run and play. Some seating and toilet facilities available but you can bring your own, or if you prefer... spread a picnic mat/sheet.
