  • For years we were not visiting the Botanical Garden. On this occasion we were invited to a sample of uses "Muses in the garden" is a beautiful, quiet place with shaded areas and areas of sol. Highly recommended to traverse it or take a book and spend the afternoon reading in the garden of butterflies.

  • Magnificent botanical garden with excellent arrangement. They should try and divert the 2 busy roads that pass by to create a more peaceful ambience!
  • Excellent, millions of spiecies, very well taken care and catalogued. Family walk or by yourself. Very safe.
  • Beautiful area that's worth visiting. Free entrance which is nice and plenty of lovely places to sit and read a book or relax. Some homeless, but overall feels pretty safe. Great for photos!
  • Nice botanical gardens. Not a must visit or an absolute gem but really nice to go for a quick walk and take some pictures as it's not that big!
  • Once the home of landscape artist and Directoe of Parks and Sideways Julian Charles Thays, his nursery is now great to see flora he collected from all over the world
