  • The botanical garden is very relaxing. It almost feels like you are far away from the city. There are restrooms and a kiosk if you need a break. There are plenty of benches as well. Don't expect to see many exotic plants. The ones they have are pretty though and if you walk beneath the trees you almost feel like you are in a forest. They also have some pretty fountains and a small lake with colourful fish and ducks. The zoo is also worth taking a look at.
