It is a short stroll and a well shaded place to rest on a sunny day. There are some nice looking swings for the younger kids.

A nice walk through these gardens on a sunny day. Could do with some seating though. It would have been nice to just sit and enjoy the atmosphere.

A nice place to stroll around or sit have lunch and people watch, a pleasant and peaceful atmosphere here contrasting with the busyness of the city around it

Beautiful park that once was the East India Company’s garden park. Good for a stroll or picnic in the middle of the city.

Lots of Botanical gardens. So much walking through gardens, flowers and trees good for the holtculturalist but don't pay if you have no interest in trees or flowers waste of time.
