Nice and scenic place. best to visit by 10 am or so. it can get quite hot even though it is surrounded by lovely plants and trees. well maintained garden.
Amazing day out. I wish I’d got here earlier and spent the whole day. Is would’ve brought a picnic, a blanket and my book and just chilled. We walked around for about 2/3 hours to see everything and could’ve easily seen more. Never seen so many trees in my life!
