Brilliant site. Lots of excellent play equipment for a good range of ages. The big trees provide good cover from the sun and there's a few tables for lunching. The parking is great and there is walking tracks around the gardens that are beautiful too.

Meander thru these beautiful gardens, stroll by the freshwater streams, the sights will make your camera continue to click. Children will love the ducks and the playground. Don’t miss the gigantic Sequioas or the rose gardens, 100s of them!
