REVIEWS:

“A lovely place on a warm day. The gardens are a lovely retreat from the city and all manner of people utilise them – office and construction workers on their lunch break, mother’s with their babies, picnicking people’s and almost everyone else. I’m there evenings the pins come down from the trees and are so take you can touch them. But no eating them, that’s illegal!!!” – Neil S.
