  • 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.
  • Under development with new planting and paths to explore every week. A wonderful diversity of plants already in place.
  • It's in working progress! Just hope that once it is fully developed, people will learn to devour the botanic gardens the local botanic groups take ages to develop, grow and attend to.
  • It's so peaceful and beautiful when you walk through, doesn't look like much on the outside however. It's gorgeous on the inside.... Love it!!!
  • Though still mostly under construction, this garden covers a decent expanse, and will definitely be worth a visit once everything had grown in.
