Not far from our accommodation so came here to stroll through these beautiful gardens. The colours were amazing and some of the various trees are not found in my hometown. A very relaxing walk.

We went there for a picnic and really enjoyed it. Beautiful selection of Frangipanis and 'Bismarck' palms. Worthwhile taking a stroll through it.
