We were looking to kill some time and I had this on our list of 'maybes' so we thought we'd give it a shot. Took a minute to locate the entrance. Cool spot to spend 45 minutes / picnic lunch.

This is a lovely little garden with some historical importance to the city. It is well maintained, and occasionally you get to smell fresh baking bread from the nearby bakery.
