A good opportunity to destress and let go of the workday by taking a walk around the gardens and slowing down for an short time. Sit and listen to the birds.

Not far from our accommodation so came here to stroll through these beautiful gardens. The colours were amazing and some of the various trees are not found in my hometown. A very relaxing walk.

We were invited to a Wedding in the park. It was beautiful, so quite and peaceful. Just a beautiful place for Wedding photos. The atmosphere lends itself to weddings.
