We decided as a couple we would tick off the Gardens as one place to visit. We had originally wanted to get on bikes and go riding through the gardens. I am glad we did not do that everyone was racing past on their own...More

Lovely gardens right in the city centre and just next to the river. Nice to just walk around and towards the river.

Loved these gardens. We stayed about 2 hours and enjoyed the quietness as well as the designs. Thoroughly recommended.

Our walk through the gardens on our street took about an hour. There are fountain, plenty of birds, wonderful flowers, great view of the river. There is also a pedestrian bridge that crosses the river. Morning time, when it is cooler, is the best.

What a wonderful relaxing walk through. A much needed getaway spot for the busy city life and pollution. Beautiful birds and clean energy.

This is a beautiful park to just wander around or sit and read/enjoy the gardens. It is handy to all hotels in the city and to transport. Beautiful spot for weddings too.
