Had a quick visit and was impressed. Very well done and very neat and tidy. Loved it all - it was very peaceful and we enjoyed walking around it.

A peaceful, well-kept and beautiful park. Lots of birdlife around the lake and plenty of bridges for photo opportunities. The gardeners have done an amazing job and it's a great place for a quiet stroll, even bringing your dog (on leash) too. There's several entrances and a few paths you can take, albeit it's mostly in a circular direction around the park. A wonderful place for a quiet picnic (making sure to take any rubbish with you!) and would highly recommend!
The gardens are beautiful. Unfortunately we came in winter and not much was flowering. But having been here before, its just beautiful. Everyone has done a beautiful job keeping the grounds tidy and clean.
