The botanic gardens is beautiful. Be prepared to spend at least 2hours there. Beautiful plants, fragrant jasmine arches, large sri Lanka Lily ponds, Mediterranean gardens, library resources etc, so worthwhile visit.

Great place to bring the family and have a picnic under the shade of the trees. Quiet and spacious just outside the city square. Lots of room for kids to run around. Parking is sometimes limited on nice days but worth the effort.
