Lovely walk through yesterday afternoon, a wedding had taken place and still had some of the decorations in the large trees, nice selection of palm, trees and under plantings, worth a visit, aviary still closed

A beautiful oasis in the city. But take insect repellent if you're loved by mozzies! They were voracious!

A good opportunity to destress and let go of the workday by taking a walk around the gardens and slowing down for an short time. Sit and listen to the birds.

Not far from our accommodation so came here to stroll through these beautiful gardens. The colours were amazing and some of the various trees are not found in my hometown. A very relaxing walk.

We were invited to a Wedding in the park. It was beautiful, so quite and peaceful. Just a beautiful place for Wedding photos. The atmosphere lends itself to weddings.
