  • The Botanical Garden parking lot we went reservation. I was a beautiful Japanese Maple. In the large park, fountains, long slide, and athletic. During the ups and downs, climb the steps and Scenic Lookout. European style fountains around the Roses also bloomed nicely.

  • Park and countless forest, child-friendly athletic, walking slowly around 2 hours to 3 hours is so 過gose. Autumn season is mixed red, yellow, and green landscape a little fun also rose, etc., very nice. It is a dining room, but it is a little expensive, so good picnic lunch, with. May not worry about parking because parking is from 9 am, but many units. However, crowded, and will recommend early arrivals. When your child enrolls, with JAF and various preferential discounts so don't miss.
