I had the honor of attending a wedding in the Gardens, They are wonderfully maintained and provide a lovely ambient feeling. Quite a large selection of trees and plants enough to keep someone interested in botany occupied for a few hours.

Play area is shaded and safe and full of interesting ideas for imaginative kids. The gardens are lovely with good paths for small bikes and scooters.

A suburban park that provides a welcome break from the heat of the sun - many shaded park benches from which to enjoy nature and contemplate life
