This is a beautiful garden on the hillside with lots of little places to stop and sit peacefully taking in the gorgeous views of the surrounding town and mountains.

A lovely little walk and gorgeous views all the way up... including a small waterfall and some short-cut steps and nooks that the kids enjoyed. Only took us about 7 mins to get up with small kids, it's a short adventure but worth seeing.

Free to enter. Be prepared for steep uphill walks. Good views from the top, and some interesting plants along the way. Nice way to spend an hour or so.

Went to a wedding at the top of the garden. Fantastic scenery and worth the climb but the first part of the path could put you off. Don't let it, it gets easier and there is a lovely shelter at the top with cold alpine...More
