  • Amazing and hidden gem - great outdoor gardens, but the inside heated botanical glass house was closed for renovations- great for families.

The rest of the grounds weren’t that significant.

  • We loved the edible garden and rose gardens the best. Daughter loved the cafes French toast! A nice big walk if you do it all. Great to let the kids burn off some energy and run around. The dinosaurs were a pleasant surprise.
  • This place is purely amazing. Its open 24/7, loads of parking and great views. Affordable cafe on site which has aromas that you could probably smell from the other end of the garden. Map available so you don't get lost or are looking for directions. All in all 10 out of 10. What caught my attention was the entrance and the gardens sculptures. Must go!
  • We live in the area and regularly walk through these beautiful, we'll maintaining bed gardens. There are many footpaths, plenty of grassed areas to Linux and seating throughout to rest and enjoy the gardens. We especially love the off leash area where you can let your dog mix and mingle with other dogs. It's a popular spot for dog owners.
  • The Gardens is a great, wide open space for everyone (and their dog) to roam. The new gardens are especially well done and provide something for everyone. Currently some of the water features are not running but the garden and its associated cafe is good to go.
  • Free to enter. Great environment. Pleasant walk ways. Well tended gardens, which are arranged in to different sections. Plenty of space for kids and dogs to run around. Mika cafe serves good and tasty food and drinks.
