  • Huge garden, affordable entry fees, there is a ticket for family unit. The train in the garden make it easier to discover the garden in short and spot the areas of interest. There is a space for BBQ but needs to be booked earlier since there is limited areas. The garden enough seating areas for everyone, there are few kids amusements. It is very good to spend a day at.
  • Beautiful Garden with Lots to See and A Chance to enjoy the Beautiful Nature in the middle of the city
  • Beautiful park, quite big, loved the different attractions, one can easily spend an afternoon there.
  • Very nice place... Quite big, need to do a lot of walking to explore the place. Not sure about the entry fee because we entered free... witnessed beautiful tulip garden and a lot more other lovely flowers.... Chairs available to relax and enjoy your day under the sun.
  • It is a very beautiful park with lots of scenery. Just bear in mind using bicycle and consuming alcohol is FORBIDDEN in the park, one of the park personnel notified us, but was kind enough not to fine us, because we honestly didn't know that. Apart from that, it is a great place.
