Nice large patch of green space. There are various parts to it. We loved the place where there are fragrant flowers. Overall a good place to take a nice stroll. Live turtle and tortoise museum is inside the garden. Worth a visit.

Nice to stroll around and look at. Some beautiful gardens and statues. And make sure you look out for the Chinese Zodiac statues where you can find your sign and sit on the little chairs and have you pic taken!
