Good things: it's free of charge and you can have a nice stroll among the rose bushes as place is biggish (like any American). Maybe it was not the best weather (I came in September and it was +30C on the day), but while there...More

Nice place if you enjoy roses but you have to come at the right time of the year to see everything in bloom. Many other flower bloom early in the season as well. This is a go to place for many weddings and family pictures.

Went with friends last night to see the fireworks. It was nice, but the vendors did not have enough products to supply.
