Cheap entry at 2JD each, worth paying another couple for one of the knowledgable guides. Mosiacs on show include one of the oldest still in existance.
Interesting bits of history in this park, and a nice peaceful walk through the Park. Don't forget to see the second half of the park which is accessed only through a boutique store. The store is expensive, but the park is good.
