An absolutely stunning park with diverse and colourful flora. Could be great for meditation, relaxing and reading as it is very calm and quiet at most times.

Its very nice, with some beautiful surroundings. You have to have some comfy shoes as it is most like a walk in woods/ park. Totally worth it in a nice sunny day.

Sorry for the late reply it's about 10 minutes bus ride. I think it will be pretty far to walk between.
