This is the relaxing and beautiful garden for the family and the couples. We had a nice walk early in May. It was nothing major but I liked the pleasant atmosphere.

I took my love of my life here as I enjoy the outdoors and it is a great public place to go for a walk after dinner or any time. The flowers are amazing and it is clean.

This is such a pleasant botanical garden. We usually go every year in the spring time with kids. I think is a perfect location for picture taking but also for learning with kids about plants.

Great garden with lots of hills and little areas to explore.The park is filled with little waterfalls and beautiful flowers. Trails lead to little gardens and places where one could enjoy the view and have lovely pictures! My little one enjoyed running around and playing in the beautiful greens.

I live near EG and have visited many times. What a wonderful experience. A walk through the gardens and a picnic or a snack in the café is a wonderful way to spend a morning or afternoon.
