Lovely place to visit & walk around, the trees, flowers and fauna are lovely. In certain areas you can see the monkeys too. Nice to just walk around and stretch the legs if you've been cooped up for a while.

We called in here to see the wonderful rose beds and beautifully kept gardens - a delight. Very interesting trees and the planting was excellent. A gardeners delight - plant sales for lots of interesting information available. Well worth a visit.
