A large and well maintained park with lines of trees that really showed off the autumn colour. The children loved playing with the leaves. There are three museums in the grounds and a mosque. Architecture is very impressive. Definitely worth visiting.

There were quite a few people taking in the peaceful environment of the gardens, well mostly just grass. It's a place for city dwellers to get country air in.
