    Great park with lots going on for children. The café and ice cream shop are a great stopping place and fairly priced. A good day out for the family where play is free.  more »

    This free visit, was a real moment of escape in the middle of multiple scents between exotic plants (banana...), through the cactus and this beautiful frog (not real) out of the water intermittently, having captured the attention of my son, children in general not to mention ' are adults by the way! This place is indescribable, so go there and soak in his way! Bravo and thank you.

    Well laid out gardens with various areas in the centre, there is a coffee shop adjoining the gardens which is in The Duthie Park, there is a children's playground and many events take place here.

    A great park! Either you want to take a walk, run or see some amazing collection of tropical plants, Cacti, this is the place to go. There is a nice cafe, place for kids to play, two car parking lots with plenty of places and toilets in the park.

    Great place to go with family, especially young children. Lots of well kept plants and exotic varieties to see. Quiet and peaceful place to visit. Cafe is being refurbished so very limited space for refreshments for some time to come.
