Very beautiful and peaceful gardens. Great spot to see/feed ducks and eels. Lots of shady spots to sit to escape sun on a hot day.

These gardens are a quiet place to reflect and are close to the riverside walk. Only a block or so from the main shopping areas

This is a nice little park to just chill out and spend a little time in nature, lovely trees provide shade. Duck pond meanders around, every season there is something different to look at.
