The volunteers do a great job in making the gardens a riot of colour. There are bands in the park on Sunday afternoons during summer.

Love the botanical gardens. Perfect for a sunny Sunday morning. Lots of space to relax, walk or play. Little cafe as well as a few animals to see. Great place to take the kids to let them run around and get some fresh air.
