Beautiful grounds and lovely view. A lovely walk on a nice day. We didn't do the tour so I have a limited amount of information about what all there is to do.

It doesn't matter what time of year you visit this attraction, you will always have the best view of the city. The gardens are the best in early summer and the grass is greener then. Just keep your purse close to your body...and do not touch it! LOL You will want to spent some cash on all the curios there is...! The building is made of sandstone and if you want to take pictures make sure you visit early for the best sky.
At night the couples gather to look at the lights and put a sparkle - not only in her eyes but on her ring finger!
Kids run around on the great green lawns and all are having fun as well as exersize. This is a must see for all!
