  • This botanic gardens are brand new so still have a way to go with the layout and with the growth of many of the plants. I can see this will develop into a full and interesting garden when all the plants are grown. A lot of effort has been put in to set it up, very impressed with the native plant selection. Very nice and a great walk.
  • Beautiful and peaceful place to sit down and relax why you listen to the birds chirp
  • Lovely place to visit amazing work volunteers have achieved
  • Nothing to see tbh.. But I do believe that it is still in working progress😉
  • Appears to be a nice place to visit, unfortunately it was a bit wet on the day, so we didn't leave the car
