“Great picnic spot”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

Pack a picnic on a nice day. Don't forget to take bread for the ducks. Lots of space for kiddies to run. Nice crumpets and tea at the teashop, and it supports a good cause.

“Botanic Gardens”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

There are wonderful trees, an orchid house and a small lake, teeming with indigenous birds. There is also a restaurant run by volunteer groups. The menu is simple but appropriate.
