Well maintained garden with a lot of plant species from all over the world. Located on the hills, provides absolutely breathtaking view over the city. A bit tricky to get to if you don't have a car.

We had never been to a concert here, but had the opportunity to see the Black Crowes and it was awesome. Very nice venue to see a show. Loved it.

It is one of the nicest botanical gardens I've had the pleasure to tour. I am interested in photography & there was *SO* much to see & photograph, I spent more than two hours there. It is well laid out & has plenty to see. Make sure you get a map !
