    How can one describe the place and the experience? Absolutely stunning and unique! This garden is an art form - the water labyrinth is a highlight - and a fantastic way to relax. You can only find so many different water lilies and lotus flowers here. There is also a splendor of plants that grow close to the water and line the banks. You should plan at least an hour, preferably longer. There are also picnic areas to linger. We were lucky enough to be able to admire the newly developed area with its waterfalls. The plants are still in their infancy and you can already imagine the splendor in 3 years. We were also here outside of the holiday season and in the early evening. Being alone in this garden is a real pleasure.

    A great visit in the summer time with gorgeous landscaped water gardens. Good for all the family including young children and babies. Make sure to go when the lots and Lillie’s are out as they are stunning.

    Lovely gardens and ponds, very peaceful, huge array of water lilies and other pond plants, and lots of frogs to spot. Well worth a visit for an hour or two, picnic tables available in the shade. Kids get given fish food at the end off the walk to feed the fish too.
