This is a large, lovely park which offers great jogging paths, free zoo and botanical garden access. Other facilities include a big lake where you can rent small boats and a couple of restaurants. It's realy worth a visit.

Lovely city park, the zoo with a bear, crocodiles, swans and other animals is very nice. Best in early morning.

Nice day in the sun. Crowded but the baby giraffe and the lake were worth it. It's a big park so be sure to follow the signs for the area you want.
