The indoor hothouses are small, but very nicely laid it and interesting. The outdoor areas are well landscaped and maintained. A nice place to sit and think, and let the kids explore.

A very lovely place to stroll around and enjoy a beautiful day. May not compare to some larger city botanical gardens but still beautiful.
