A beautiful and attractive place, situated just outside town. A place to relax, have fun with friends and family. Lots of space for everyone with different types of activities and events. An area full of different types of flowers and trees.

The garden is always in a good condition and well maintained. Perfect for a picnic with the family or an afternoon stroll. The garden is fenced and only for paying visitors.

A must on a Saturday afternoon or Sunday to relax and take in the beautiful flora that is in abundance in this park. Alternatively find one of many favorable spots to picnic with a cold glass of Chardonnay and a sandwich.

Beautiful gardens, forests with a small restaurant, long and short walks, good birding and occasional outdoor concerts. It can be busy on weekends and public holidays so visit in the week if you are looking for a quiet time in nature
