I can't believe we haven't gone there sooner. This place is beautiful and free, it doesn't get much better than that.

It was a wonderful small garden but truly worthy of a visit. Well done well maintained. Definitely go back.

This was an ok place just to kill time until our hotel room was available. They did have some of the prettiest and best smelling roses I have ever came across!!!

This was a very scenic place beautifully landscaped with extra eye catching views. Kids (and adults) will love the "once upon a time" house along with the Water dragon. Plenty of places to sit and enjoy the views (maybe picnic?) and take a rest. It's not a huge place, you can easily spend a non-rushed hour here. Would also be a good place for elderly or those with challenging mobility-wise since the trails are all flat. We were too late for the gift shop -closed at 4 pm but will definitely return if in the area again.

This is a gorgeous place to visit. And, as I write this review, it is FREE. As a professional photographer I've used this location for portraits. Weddings can be arranged here as well. It would be hard to find a nicer, more beautiful place to be married ... or just for a visit.
