A beautiful way to spend an hour walking through tropicals, greenery and vibrant colours! It's all free! (There is a donation box if you wish to donate to the care)

Lovely gardens and very nice staff. Worth a visit, if you're interested in plants. Interestingly, they have quite a few tropical species.
