We have visited and walked the gardens many times and we always find new sites and sounds. From the interesting birds to the local worshippers who have revival type singing going on, there is always something to experience.

I thought this stop on our way from Kumasi to Accra would be a bust but we asked when we arrived for a tour and the guy that helped us was awesome. I wish I could remember his name. He knew so much about the plants and trees in the area.
