This is a very nice place which is kind of overshadowed by the zoo in the same area. It has some very nice flowers and other plants. It also has a restaurant. Very nice for some quiet time.

I visited here on a lovely warm, sunny, Sunday afternoon. The gardens are very well maintained without being fussy. By that I mean the plants and grass grow as intended and are not cut and pruned to be something they aren't. It is a nice...More
