This park is a decent spot for photo moments. Capture your wedding memories, engagement etc. Be on notice that a permit may be required. Check with the city to avoid any fines.

Small quiet little park not far from square one shopping centre. If you need a quiet moment or solace from the everyday hustle and bustle this is the place to get your zen back

As you follow the pathway the plants are identified discreetly, making it more interesting for anyone into horticulture. It's a quiet space and not very busy (I've been several times and usually...

Lots of Graduations and weddings stop by to take pictures in the green areas of the park. The park itself it not up-kept very well, so appears dirty.

I consider this one of the most beautiful park in the city, a lot of people even close to the location of this park does not know that this garden exist. You have to see to believe and share your own opinion on this beautiful garden.
