Nice enough place to see a variety of roses. But later in the year you lose a lot of the rosebuds and the overgrowth needs trimmed. As a bonus you get to see alot of planes coming in for a landing over the garden.

Bit of a late review but it was a beautiful garden even off season before the roses are out. The gardeners are there tending the roses and maintenance is ongoing but still a peaceful place.
