Always a nice peaceful place for a family picnic. The gardens are great with nice views over the small lake. The is a good sized childrens playground here as well. Nice place to just walk around on a nice day. Parking isn't usually a problem.

I used to go to this place a lot when I lived in the area. Went for a visit recently and it is still a wonderful place to go, play, have a picnic and escape from concrete.

The gardens offer something for everyone. Wide range of plants to explore, beautiful open areas to play, spot fish and eels in the ponds, water features and well serviced paths. We loved our time here as a family exploring the grounds.
