The best place to go if looking for inner peace, a rejuvenating surrounding and definitely a happy third place. From picnics, garden parties to memorable wedding pictures.........this is a place of wonder. The water falls and chipping birds are definite to give you a moment of relaxation
A very nice park in a beautiful area. There is ample parking and lots of trees to sit under. Feels safe as well. There is no entrance fee, so pack a picnic basket and take the family for a lovely day in the park.
So beautiful. Spacious. Many there to enjoy the scenery in different ways. Good place to leave the city without leaving the city.
Lovely peaceful gardens. Beautifully maintained. Nice shaded areas if you want to have a picnic or just for a stroll around the park on a lazy Sunday afternoon. Park is in gated area. Seems to be safe. Worth a visit
Very nice relaxing picnic spot in a suburban area. Great locality. Bathrooms however not up to standard and very dirty. The occasional dog landmine, as a lot of people take their dogs here for a stroll.
