A beautiful and relaxing place to wander either alone or with someone. I was lucky to witness a proposal by the reflection pond! Well maintained, with swimming, fishing, boating, canoeing, hiking and more outdoorsy stuff. The gardens are lovely and inspiring to all creative types (writing, photography, sketching). Definitely going back between Jan & April for the blooming season!
A very gorgeous and relaxing place for wander, fishing, boating with your friends or families. The garden is small than you think, but it is pretty beautifully. It is really worth time. Besides there is a playground for children.
