  • Beautiful garden slopes down to river you can walk right beside river. Has arts and crafts house in garden. Lots of paths to wander around garden. Nice clean Toilets.
  • Just beautiful place to amble and connect with nature. Fun for kids with a couple of play things by the river or just throwing rocks. Also handy that pikopiko cafe is nearby after you build up an appetite 😉
  • Stunning landscaping, absolutely breathtaking garden with great atmosphere - like a fairy village. Good for families.
  • Beautiful place for a walk, barbecue or picnic. Thankyou to the workers that keep it looking so nice. 👌
