The view from this location is absolutely amazing and well worth the walk if you find yourself in the gardens. If you happen to be driving in the neighborhood above, it is well worth a stop to enjoy the view and the grounds from above.

This building is located in the gardens, at the top of the hills but it's easy to arrive here. From this point you can have one of the best panorama of the city.

No, you cannot walk around the gardens or up the hill 24/7. There are opening and closing hours for the park as well. Go to their site and you can see what the working hours are, all depends on the season. The parks are free.
