Very popular. Has a lovely restaurant among the trees. Big children's playground. Many kids parties on a weekend. A small zoo with mostly monkeys and birds. The vendors selling hand crafted nik naks can be annoying as there are so many of them.

Refreshing walk in the park to view the botanicals and watch the families enjoying their outings on a Saturday afternoon. Park was clean and well kept. Separate playground for children near the zoo. Many families were enjoying sporting activities.
