Small but lovely gardens - really, more of a park than a botanical garden. Well-kept, with a gateman to maintain order. Quiet, with benches and lawns. Lovely trees, flowers, and a very visible bat colony. Recommended.

If you want some outdoor space and cool breeze, this is the place. Big trees, shady areas, take some pics of the Bats, saw no birds.

Well maintained and quiet place to spend good time with family. If you go during weekends it mostly congested with wedding teams taking photos. Also a very large colony of bats are resident in some of the trees.

Good place to relax for a few minutes, under the shade of a tree. Wish I had more time here to explore the garden.

We passed by this public park while walking in the old city. Nice place to rest and relax and maybe pose for some pictures with lovely green trees around. We also saw many bats flying there during morning

Another disappointment on our walk around the city, this lovely garden was closed up with every gate chained and padlocked. From what we could see through the railings, it looked beautiful. If only we could have gotten inside. :(
