A nice quiet spot except for the days it gets over-run with bus groups taking advantage of the picninc areas. Great place to sit in your car or on a blanket and look out over the ocean.
We spent yesterday afternoon in the gardens..teenagers and adults..and had a wonderful time!! Walked all around the many paths, different sections and interesting plants.. Such green lawns and magnificent trees...The little cafe has excellent food..yummy cakes and coffee. Plenty of parking..We just loved it!!
