Quite well maintained. It has themed gardens. It provides train ride for those who do not want to walk. The botanical garden is just walking distance to the youth park which is an idea place for picnic or water play.

Botanical gardens offers a wonderful opportunity to walk 'in the jungle' and see a range of plants and wildlife. You will definitely see monkeys, turtles and maybe a monitor lizard. You can walk the whole circuit in around half and hour at a steady pace.
