“Lovely, Peacefull & clean.”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

Whether you visit for an enjoyable walk, a concert or a picnic. This place is always a great way to relax.
Beautifully laid out with a spectacular range of flora. Quiet hidden corners. Great for kids, couples and solo walkers. Dogs allowed on leads.

“Old world beauty”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

Great for a stroll. Old colonial gardens that are well kept and making headway into new understandings and leanings (displays, etc.). Worth a visit for a special, green experience.
