We enjoyed the high ropes challenges and zip lines. The plant arrangements are very nice, especially the conifers, but we were sad that the cactus house was closed.

It’s a very quiet park where you can relax. I wouldn’t call it botanic garden because you don’t find flowers and other species typically found in those places. However, there’s a wide variety of trees. You can go for a walk, ride your bike, or...More
