A tranquil oasis on the edge of the city centre with a number of distinct areas of differently themed formal gardens all very well maintained. Highlight for me were the 2 round and interlinked berceau.

Beautiful garden in the middle of the city; peaceful and serene. Great place to take beautiful photos. The flowers are gorgeous, the colors amazing. Spent a lovely hour with my teenage daughters.

The gardens are kept immaculate and are beautiful to look at. Good for a walk or having a tea/coffee in the little cafe inside of the garden- if it is open. The garden is not that big but a quiet oasis in a buzzing town....More

Nice garden with beautiful roses. Also take a look at the small houses. There is also a small statue and a nice poem to read.
