We hosted here in a sunny afternoon. Only cost a couple of euros / kids go free. Quirky show gardens if different sizes set in nicely landscaped gardens. It was very pleasant and relaxing to wander amongst although teenage son wasn't so impressed!

Nice Gardens around the park with each a theme and descriptions of the garden. Next to it you have the swimming pool for a cool down after the walk around the garden. Cost for the garden entrance €1, pool 3€

It was not too busy and a beautiful autumn day, so a lot of fun. Children also like it, they have swings, a giant chess game and attractions to tickle their fantasy. Plenty of benches to have a short siesta while the kids play.
