As part of the Van Gogh walking tour we had a walk around the gardens, saw his plinth and the many other statues in the gardens. Very cool in the gardens and a great place for a picnic

A pleasant little park just off the main boulevard. Good place for shade and a sit down before you move on to your next attraction.
