“A nice Garden”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

This garden is a quiet small garden run by volunteers who do a wonderful job. They obviously delight in providing a get away where people can go to see flora that they would not see in their state or country.

“Relaxing and lovely”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2012

This place is a gem. hard work from staff and an army of volunteers have ensured beautiful, serene and delightful gardens equally suitable for a stroll, quiet reading, or family picnic. I visit regularly and love to note the seasonal changes and the professional level of the upkeep.

“Beautiful Scenic Spot maintained by locals.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2012

Small place? Great for a picnic! Maintained by locals.
Great if you have free time and just wish to chill or think. But not worth the visit if you are on a tightly packed trip with plenty to do and not much time.

“Beautiful park- well worth a visit for a stroll or a picnic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2012

This is a reasonably sized and beautifully landscaped park, which offers you the opportunity to relax and stroll- maybe even bring along a picnic.

They have picnic tables and toilet facilities.

Within the well maintained grounds, there are various themed gardens, including a Japanese garden, rose garden, and a beautiful cherry tree walk.

Well worth a visit!
