The Park is quite central. Only about 5-10 min walk from the parliament building and Main Street. It's so peaceful. A lovely Avery as well if you like birds. Really big playground for the kids. It's a great place even for a solo stroll.

Visited on a sunny Sunday afternoon. Beautiful gardens with live music, plenty of places to.sit and relax. Cafe was good although a little pricy but to be expected. Definitely worth a visit.

The park was bigger than I expected. And, it was not only a simple park but consist of various sections such as botanic garden, and even a small zoo. I suggest to take a break at least half a day here with some takeout food.

This is the most beautiful, well maintained large park. Fabulous flowers and trees and a wonderful, peaceful place to walk around or just sit and enjoy. There is a very good children's play area in one part of the park. The cafe/restaurant was very busy...More
