“Terrible!”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

When my wife and i entered this Garden we were expecting alot more,there was one so called pond and a few fish surrounded by a walkway and about 30-40 plants.The whole thing took 5 mins.I saw several sponsers for this Garden but it really seems like no one has looked after this Garden in Years.A real disappointment.I can't believe the rating it has.

“Relaxing place to read a book”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

I spent the better part of an hour here lying on a park bench surrounded by various bushes of different labelled names in the dirt for viewing, and underneath a big tree.

The sound of the nearby waves was incredibly relaxing and I was quickly lost in my book while enjoying the atmosphere I read in. Small, although a beautiful place to quickly stroll through, or hole yourself up in to relax.
