The Botanical Gardens add a nice addition to this city. We only had a quick look around as it was winter, with not much to see, but were visiting the zoo anyway - which is conveniently located across the road.

The Botanical Gardens is a great place to spend a couple of hours to amble round looking at the floral displays. There is a cafe bar where you can grab a bite to eat and drink too. This attraction is free to enter.
