This is an attractive garden with a large pond in the centre. The koi carp keep the visitors amused for ages, especially the children.

If you like plants then this is a must go place. Well maintained. Best to see in the evening as lights are there on some days.

Really enjoyed this part of the Botanical Gardens. They have a large assortment of various Bonsai trees which I found very interesting as well.

As part of the botanical gardens the "Japanese"is definitely worth a visit. It is more Asian inspired than strictly Japanese. Lovely ponds and walking trail. Kids LOVE the KOI pond! glad we strolled through it.

It is a besautiful laid out garden and is very representative of gardens seen in Japan. Exquisite. Look for the evening light festivals during certain times of the year.
