One for the flower lovers
This park is worth a visit if you like flowers and / or enjoy photographing them. They have some really beautiful flower beds and seasonal flora and fauna. There is also a river in this park, with a stone bridge that has a drawbridge.
The park is long and there is a nice walkway around it. There are flowers here there and everywhere: except on the long stretch on the right hand side of the entrance. This is where the very popular splash pool is in summer. To the right of that splash pool is a small playground with a sand pit and combination unit. In the sand pit is a broken digger. The combination unit is old and run down. The playground didn't engage my children for longer than an hour. I wouldn't recommend this park to visit with kids out of season. However, in summer the splash pool is a great place to cool down. It isn't one of our favourites, simply because we need shade and it doesn't have any!
The park is open from 8 am to 6 pm. There is a car park right by the entrance and splash pool. There is a management building there too and it has a restaurant. We had planned to eat in the restaurant on our last visit as it gets good reviews, but it was closed for renovations. I don't know when it is back open. Actually there were a couple of areas getting some work done. (January 2017) Hopefully they plan to do some work on the playground too. :-)
