We visited the park when there were a large building site next to the station. Going from dust and heavy machinery to calm and green - city vs. nature. Names attached to almost every plant and tree in the park. Intriguing greenhouses.

Beautiful park. Well worth a visit! Inspired by nature but brought together with clever accents like drinking mechanical lillies and flowers. Quirky benches and plenty of beautiful wildlife it's like stepping into a small part of paradise. Definitely visit early morning to avoid the crowds...More

A very beautiful and big garden. It's free to enter and you have a lot of information about the plants there. The goat-petting spot is the best part of the park 🐐❤️
