This is a lovely garden with many trails and walkways to explore. We got there from our hotel by renting a City Cycle Bike - very reasonable. There are washrooms in the Gardens which are well maintained. No matter what time of year you visit you will be in awe of the beauty. Check out the massive Banyan Fig tree planted in the 1870s- unbelievable! Check out the photo.
The children's playground is amazing. I love how it's accessible for adults and children to have fun together. The shared swings are amazing! The colour combo is great and it seems to get used often. A great place for families to get out of the city and enjoy the outdoors. Great for my 1 1/2 year old but there were also lots of teenagers enjoying the playground
Great space to escape from the city. Great children’s play areas, train ride and viewing areas of the park area as well as the beautiful flower gardens. Easy to lose a couple of hours in.
Beautiful, expansive area down by the river. Great playground facilities for children and cafe available. Markets on a Sunday can get a little busy, but testament to the stalls available. A wonderful place to find some quiet time and space in the city.
Wonderful to experience the mangroves by the river and something of a tropical forest. Good to sit further on beside the river and take time out. Coffee good at the cafe. We found ourselves a little disorientated at times. There weren't enough signs or maps.
