It was my first visit. May is not the best time to see gardens and I am sure these gardens will be beautiful in spring. However, to walk alongside the water gave me a feeling of serenity.

These lovely gardens are generally quiet and peaceful and provide a little haven away from the town. Well worth a visit as it has a good mix of planting

Very beautiful and peaceful gardens. Great spot to see/feed ducks and eels. Lots of shady spots to sit to escape sun on a hot day.

These gardens are a quiet place to reflect and are close to the riverside walk. Only a block or so from the main shopping areas
