  • Some beautiful old trees. Would love to climb them. But cant. Had some little market stalls there. Wad good to pick up a cold drink n something to snack on. Was a wedding going on while there and thought i was a beautiful back drop for such an event. Beautiful flowers in bloom too. Lots of space to have a game of backyard cricket etc. Loads of shade to just chill n relax.
  • Absolutely fantastic place! Such a nice spot to relax and have a picnic. I always love visiting the markets there on a Sunday and looking at the flowers. Ive done a few photoshoots there too and will be doing our engagement shoot this weekend in the gardens. Just a great spot!
