Very beautiful and peaceful. We loved the huge old trees, some were super tall and one spread out so much, that it was supported by overhead cables.

The garden is well-maintained. There are benches on which one can rest. The flowers were not in full bloom when we visited.

Quite a long walk from the city centre, but worth it. Free entry. A must for gardeners. Very hot tropical greenhouse with both wet and dry areas. Very peaceful.
