  • Tree walk not very extensive but interesting, fun for the first time. Surrounding trails are easy, enjoyable.
  • It was OK. Beautiful botanical garden and tree walk but it was a bit boring for the kids. Pretty pricey for what it is. I took the kids there for the tree walk but didn't realize it's inside the garden and you have to pay for the garden entrance too. Maybe my expectations were too high, given other reviews. A little scary for some kids (and perhaps some adults too).
  • Nice place to visit once a year! Next year will go there in May to Jun😇
  • The price makes it so I can never take people here. It's neat.
  • Really enjoyed it. It was fun and not too crowded during the long weekend
