If you are a fan of Mediterranean flora this is the place for you to visit. We were there on a sunny afternoon and thoroughly enjoyed study different specimen and Italian herbs

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.

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!

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