Beautiful green space with campground, sports fields, athletic training center, miles of trails, a top-notch geothermal pool, and who knows what else. Seriously this place is gigantic and has so much to offer. No other city park compares.

What a lovely day, starting with an early lunch at Flora cafe in the botanical gardens and a wander through the botanics. We then made it over to the swimming complex which is FANTASTIC (though if you're body-conscious then be ware that there are no private changing rooms) with play pools, a pool for laps, a seawater pool and other...

After flying all night and being somewhat groggy, a visit to this pool will be just the ticket. Take a nice hot shower first and then dip into the hot pots. What a great way to take the stress of traveling right away. Nice and clean, friendly people, wonderful feeling.

With two young children this was perfect on a cold spring day. We rented towels and went to the gender specific changing rooms. Really clean and well arranged, strip showers to get clean as the pool is not chemically cleaned, not a problem although my 4.5 year old commented on a lot of the ladies bodies......quietly at least. All the... More

Wonderful good value holiday experience. You have to be prepared to strip naked and shower but know that everyone else has. A brave dash into the cold (even ice and snow) and you can do some 50m lengths in warm sulphur smelling pool or sit in a selection of hot tubs at different temperatures. Steam room,and sauna and sea water... More

Walked by one day and decided to give the pool a try! Our group was not disappointed! Not only did we have to rent suits because we were unprepared (oh yeah attractive one pieces) but we also rented towels. Staff was kind and helpful. I was surprised how clean and expansive the locker rooms were. You have to shower before... More

Took us a while to find as we decided to walk but it's okay for a nice walk. Not much going on in April sadly.

Spent a couple of hours boiling myself in hot water, few minutes in steam room and went few times down the slide, much fun! Really good place to get some relax after 8 hours of tour. It gets quite crowded on early evening but it's still enjoyable. definitely recommended if, like me, you don't have much time to go to... More
