It is large, uncrowded, has several trails, goes to a waterfall, consists of native tropical forest, with lots of flower and shrub replantings. Once an aviary was below and lots of parrots, cockatoos, etc. escaped and now live in the arboretum.
I go there often; it is good throughout the year.
The other good garden is Foster Garden, above Chinatown.
