Stroll across the 37 hectares (91 acres) of SSR Botanic Garden and explore the preserved plant life of the Southern Hemisphere's oldest botanical garden. Admire the neatly maintained gardens and their luxuriant vegetation, including the giant water lilies of the park's main pond, abundance of sugar canes, and over 85 varieties of palm tree.
