many people seem to forget that this gem is in our town. With 2 places to eat and many walkways this is and outing for the young and the not so young. Walk, jog or just relax under the tree.

A lovely place for a Sunday morning walk. This really isn’t a botanical garden, just a nice park. There was little to interest even a n amateur botanist. Needs a bit of iinvestment and TLC.

The gardens are well located with free parking. Do attend the 5 km Parkrun every Saturday at 08h00. The parkrun is a free event, however you have to register prior to the event. The gardens are well maintained.

This was a great relaxing experience with a nice waterfall and great parks. The flowers are beautiful and it is an over all nice experience to be surrounded by God's creation.
