I love this place! You feel like you are in China as soon as you step inside. Great value for money. There is also a brilliant tea room overlooking the water, I highly recommend

Best $6 we spent. Right in the heart of the 'hustle & bustle' of the city, the Chinese garden offers a little bit of solitude. So pretty & calming. For any photographers out there (professional or amateur), this is the perfect backdrop for photos.

This place is an absolute joy - tranquil oasis in the heart of the bustling City. Well designed and well looked after, it offers you peaceful and relaxing time, whether you choose to stroll, or just sit in one of beautiful gazebos, or have a tea in traditional tea house. ENJOY!

This was a lovely tranquil place to visit in the middle of a busy city. There was still a lot to see despite it being Winter. I loved watching the fish and the ducklings .

I was really beautiful and tranqil - one of the best Chinese Gardens I have visited. It is hard to believe this peaceful and beautiful place is right in a noisy city. Loved the waterfalls and the Tea Garden too.
