I visited the park in a clidy day, however, this was so beatiful and quet, really worth visiting and just strolling lovely park areas, full of stunning plants. I was really impressed, though the park is not quite large.

This garden really looks like a Japanese one even with banzai trees. It is nice to walk trough the paths of this little garden on the island.
