I love this amazing free garden inside the busy park, it is peaceful with all of the trees and flowers that you can enjoy inside, and the amazing pond outside is something out of this world.

Everything is closed due to pandemic but it was beautiful nonetheless. The Lily’s and koi and there was even a turtle. Worth visiting

This botanical garden is a great place to go for a walk through. Many very interesting plants. Even have a great orchid show at times.

Considering that we have visited many botanical gardens on our travels, this was by far and beyond the smallest. It was well maintained and pretty, but you can't really spend more than 20 minutes in the 'botanical building'. It was free which is welcome, but I wouldn't recommend going out of your way to visit it.
