They look like roses but they are not. Those flowers come from Japan and every bush in the garden is of different color! Takes about 20 minutes to explore the park and it's free!

This little hidden garden is simply beautiful! Ideal to read a book or just relax there. Its next to the lake and an open beach, so you can visit it on your way there or back!
