A great place for a quiet walk. If you need a break from the crowds, go here. Lots of parking, lots of space to be by yourselves. Beautiful.

Lots of trails right within the city. The property is well-maintained and a popular place on the weekends. The meditation garden is a fun place to count frogs in the summer, and the Italian garden has statues of goddesses and quiet benches to sit.

Very well maintained. Offers ample parking space, free admission and scenic views. Suitable for those having some interest in Dendrology or Botany, else it is just like a city park.
