  • Loved the kids garden, which was he highlight of the park - expansive and well maintained, this was so much fun! From the giant carrots to the pumpkin hut and the creeping trailers on the castle wall, this place has to be ability to transport even adults back to their childhood - the whole family enjoyed the experience. The butterfly garden, rose garden and tropical oasis were well worth the price of admission, not to mention the miniature trains. Leisurely walk makes for a nice morning activity - very pleasant experience, especially in the middle of a city.
  • This place is huge! Be prepared to walk, walk, walk. Sunscreen and a big hat are your best friends. We went in the middle of July and we still have the suntan. There are some beautiful sights though. You really have to go early if you want to see everything.
