“Nice for a wander”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Pleasant gardens with a palm house; nothing spectacular but a nice contrast to the surrounding commercial districts

“Well maintained - in the centre of the City”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

If you have time on your hands, this park is the place to go if the weather is pleasant. The grounds are well maintained where you can kick a football around as well as there being flower beds, trees and shrubs to enjoy. There are pathways around the park which guide you, some of which follow the winding river. The are botanical glass houses should you wish to visit some of the more tropical plants.

Reviewed August 28, 2012

A real haven in the city centre, with formal gardens and glass houses. A very pleasant afternoon stroll.

“Wonderful rose garden”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

There were hundreds of different roses in the gardening society's rose garden, which is in a park that also has a greenhouse, cafeteria and an ice cream stand. The rose garden is fairly compact, so you don't need to walk long distances to see it all through. Nearby is an outdoor butterfly park (no butterflies seen on a windy day, though, but still pretty plants) and there is also a beehive that you look into by opening and closing one of the sides (it has a glass wall inside the hive box).

“Nice place centrally located”
Reviewed July 29, 2012 via mobile

Nice for a walk or for a lunch break. Try one of the paths along the canal and avoid all the tourists and join the birds instead.
