Truly loved walking around the beautiful gardens here. We enjoyed the rose garden especially. The free tram tour was so informative and let us view the entire park which we never could have done on foot in one day.

Nice garden with plenty of plants and flowers. Pity that the baterfly exhibition was closed. The tram guide tour is nice bit too short.

Yes, there is still lots to see even though it's not peak season. Right now the roses are in full bloom, but there's always something wonderful in the gardens, no matter the season. Hope this helps.
