“Pleasant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

To be honest, was too hot to enjoy fully. Appreciated the diverse range of plant species but OMG got stung so much by mosquitoes. Beware. Wear full length clothing or bring an insect zapper.

“Refuge from the city bustle”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

The park is a cool oasis in the heat of the city. The plants are interesting but the main attraction is the shady paths under scented plants and trees. There were plenty of seats for a rest and it never felt crowded despite the large numbers entering the gates.
A great place to recharge your batteries!

“Peaceful”

Very peaceful and pleasant gardens, lots of shade on a hot day. Some quite unusual plants & trees of interest to the botanically-minded.
