  • Such a beautiful place. The sounds. The smells. The plants. The trees. The water. The peace. Truly a great we are lucky to call our own.
  • Update*** 8 months ago I was Disappointed with the renovations, it detracted from the beauty within that was demonstrated in the past. Now the renovations were worthwhile. The gardens are outstanding. Wonderful memories shared here.
  • It's a fantastic place with a nice collection of material. Go on the weekends and save yourself the drive from work if you want to fully experience/appreciate the venue because they close quite early on weekdays.
  • I love the park. Especially in the evening. Its a nice quiet place. Bring a blanket, book and some food and you are set
  • Awesome green house with all sorts of plant life. There is a nice park/ golf course there too.
