  • 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.
