  • I love the proper signage of the washroom areas and on all the plants and trees. The Botanical Gardens is a nice and wonderful place to get some fresh air and relax. There if enough seating space, shelters and bins to dispose of our waste. Keep it up!
  • Great garden but there is room for improvement. Also it is one of the great place to get wedding photos and other sorts of photo shoots and picnics with the family and friends!
