  • The best place to go if looking for inner peace, a rejuvenating surrounding and definitely a happy third place. From picnics, garden parties to memorable wedding pictures.........this is a place of wonder. The water falls and chipping birds are definite to give you a moment of relaxation
  • A very nice park in a beautiful area. There is ample parking and lots of trees to sit under. Feels safe as well. There is no entrance fee, so pack a picnic basket and take the family for a lovely day in the park.
