“A real treasure”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

A beautiful garden in the heart of the city, with a pond and swan boats. Not to be missed even if you're only there for a day.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

I couldn't believe this park - it was in the middle of the city, clean and so peaceful. The trees and the water were so calming. You can do activities as well - like the swan boats!

“Beautiful Respite”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Loved the maturity of the gardens, the walkways and the proximity to bars and restaurants. Great place to get away, even for a moment!

“Tranquil and Beautiful”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

It's a wonderful place for a quiet stroll. Just enough art, flowers,
and grove of trees to feel safe and also feel like you're not in the city.
