I spent a beautiful fall morning at the gardens. The ponds were nice and the walkways were easy to navigate. There are a few benches to sit on which I took advantage of. It was very quiet and peaceful. There were still some flowers in bloom which made for some very pretty pictures. Free entry and an easy walk from the city center. With the sun shining, the colorful trees were beautiful. It is a nice place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Not too impressive as a botanical garden

We enjoyed a really nice stroll around the gardens which are located just a few minutes walk from the main train station. Lots of varieties of trees and plants and colours for this time of year, very nice, quiet and peaceful. It is a great place to go for a walk or just find a calm place to seat and read. Not too impressive as a botanical garden but it works really good as park.
