    We spent few hours walking the gardens today and all family absolutely loved it. Great photo opportunities and great place to spend time with a family. The gardens provides neverending chances of spotting rare plants all over the place. The cafe is a nice spot to chill out, and the nearby swing lets parents get some time off. Picnic area and playground made a perfect place to wrap up the trip and make kids extra calm with tiredness for the journey home. Generally would recommend visiting Woodstock Gardens to everyone, especially on a nice, sunny day.

    Peaceful, beautiful. Surprising lack of bins though. Inconvenient for picnicking and walking dogs.
