  • A peaceful place I like to go to, to help try and clear my mind from all the home life.
  • It's ok. A small-ish rock garden. There are no lights / lamps so it's not viewable when it's dark.
  • This Is a very nice garden to walk. Is not very big but beautiful. Has a lot of entrances and it's very clean.
