This is a neat waterfront park to visit. It's primarily a collection of flower gardens with paths to walk through. It sits right on the waterfront. The flowers gardens are impeccably maintained as is the lawn area surrounding them.

Really enjoyed the nice park and Gundowla tour - nice on a warm day! Doing this during the changing of the leaves season was very pretty - lighthouses are beautiful.

it's beautiful in the spring, summer and fall... haven't been (yet) in winter, but I'll bet it's nice then too... they have such lovely gardens and they're well maintained.

A very romantic garden to spend some quiet time in natural surroundings. Perfect place to click some pictures with bright floral background.
