“Really nice place for a walk and time out.”
Reviewed 31 December 2013 via mobile

Some very nice trees and fauna in this park and it's a nice break from the toxic fumes being pumped out by ancient busses and cars in Merida traffic!

This is a nice little park and there is cool adventure activities in the tree tops if you feel up to it.

I really enjoyed the pond full of Koi fish anf terrapins.

Tip - Bring a picnic and some drinks and chill out here for a few hours

“Ropes course and zip line make this park”
Reviewed 28 December 2013

I did the ropes course with my wife and two 5 year olds. We all loved it. Don't know how much it had to do with garden itself but well worth it.

“Tree climbing and zip-line”
Reviewed 16 April 2013

The gardens themselves are lacking in a few place, such as their rose garden was a little pathetic, but other parts were great. The best part, and the reason why the gardens got 5 stars was the tree climbing and zip-line. For not much money you get harnessed up, climb up a tree and then walk on ropes from tree canopy to tree canopy. And at the end you go on a short zip-line to get down from the trees. It was incredibly fun!
