I enjoyed visiting the park it is very beautiful but I highly recommend taking a guide who can explain more about the history otherwise it will be just a simple park!

The garden is dry and run down. Not well maintained. The giant water Lillie’s didn’t look healthy. If you want to see 100 year old tortoises then you’ve come to the right place. Otherwise I’d probably give it a miss.

Very beautiful grounds with extraordinary old trees. Some signage, but not enough. Well kept but not immaculate. Very nice place to spend a couple of hours.

It was very interesting and the guide was good and shared good information with us. So peaceful and tranquil. Nice kiosks for picnic. We went there twice.
