  • A beautiful outdoor venue with interesting history and natural wonders around every corner. A place to walk and sit and walk and sit, to really enjoy the atmosphere.

  • This place is beautiful and well maintained. Plenty of benches around the park and under tree shades to take some time and admire your surroundings. I loved the animals that you can see around, the Bonsai trees are really special the art gallery was a nice cultural touch .The Ticket price is not bad. We did enjoy our visit.
  • It’s been about 10 years since my last visit and the gardens are even more beautiful now. In the movie, the narrator said that the garden is “still in its infancy” I can only imagine when the trees are over 100 years old! It was a hot day but there is enough shade and breeze and beauty to take a chill walk and stop at every nook on the way back to the cafe. If you are looking for an easy family outing, head over early and have an Asian inspired lunch overlooking the water. Perfect venue to gather with friends 🥰
