There are wonderful displays of many types of plants, trees and shrubs to wander through with plenty of shade if the sun is at its peak.

Not exceptionally good but nice and close the zoo. There was an art installation going on, wish I could stayed longer. But it's still just a botanical garden, what do you want.
