It was a nice day in Margaret Island! A beautiful place where you can enjoy green places, attractions and especially the lovely japanese garden. We walked a lot but if you want you can rent a bike for a trip around the island.

We went there with my daughter. The thing we loved was fountains dancing to the music. Lovely playground for children. You can go there even by bus, tram, hop on- hop off bus or by boat.
