  • This was my second visit since I moved around. Last time in June there were plenty of roses and it was just gorgeous from the entrance itself. This time there was a Camelia exposition ongoing. For those who love flowers it is definitely worth a visit. So many different species could be seen. Even without the flowers, the garden provides a nice walk. There is plenty of space for kids to run around and all the plants are labeled so it can also be educational too.
  • Free entrance, but looked like nothing is working. I visited it in April, to be honest, there was nothing to see, besides the front building and the fountain. Maybe the period was not good.
  • Beautiful Park, perfect to take a walk, and breath fresh air.(you can also bring young kids there!)
  • Great place to visit if you love nature ... no one should miss it during the summer season
  • If you're into plants, this is a place to be. But you don't have to be interested in the different species to enjoy this place. It's quiet, calm and scenic. Take your mind off things and just stroll through. You won't be disappointed!
