  • A beautiful, large park with great playgrounds and fantastic flora and fauna. There are areas for flora and fauna. A small electric railway passes the entire huge site. Always a trip with the family value.

  • The Park is very spacious with a large lake, many green areas to the picnic or relax with a Petting Zoo, many playing facilities for children or just simply too to go for a walk. A highlight is the parking lights at the beginning of the year, here much light is set beautifully in scene, very much recommended.

  • The Grugapark with a few lights, so I had imagined. However, my expectations were exceeded lengths! I was delighted with the beautiful lighting and effects. Again and again!

  • 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.
