“Beautiful jungle style garden”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

Just 6 km out of San Fernando/L.U. is this garden located. We saw public jeepneys there but we went their by car. The way to the garden is clearly signed. Parking is available right at the entrance.
They park was designed with lots of love and it is indeed a place to stay for a longer time. Even a picknick area is available. The character of this garden is more a jungle habitat then a botanical garden at any university. Partly the lack of maintainance is visible but on other spots we saw that they try to keep it maintained.
The so called zoo is rather a desaster. The animals are kept in much to small cages- even they got plenty of free space in this garden and some animals look not very healthy at all.
The very good thing in the garden is, that you can stroll around on real jungle tracks- passing tall bamboo trees on both sides and climb up to a scenic view point. We saw lots of interesting flowers and plants, and even interesting fruit trees.
Near the park entrance is a shop for souvenirs, snacks and drinks. Restrooms are there as well.
The garden was worth a visit- and probably another one in the near future.
