Their is a lot to see at the park when wandering around to include: multiple ponds, trees changing colors, and a park for kids in addition to the old palace. There is also a bar for a tapa while you are on site.

What a refreshing place to visit. Beautiful lawns and flower beds, little ponds and grottos. Lots of up and down walking through forest a vibrant greens. Even a little cafe. Relax and enjoy the fresh air out of the downtown area.
