  • Love the ideas that they have divided the whole park into different styles of garden so you get to experience them all in one place. Good place to spend few hours in Hamilton. Fun and easy walk but a bit confused circulations , free entry and visitor guide map can be purchased for $2.
  • Large, beautiful recreation area with a children's playground and a variety of lovely, well- maintained formal gardens with educational posted descriptions. Don't miss the carved wooden mural in the Pavilion. Many areas to play, picnic, rest, or contemplate. Gourmet food trucks arrive on summer Sunday afternoons; come join the fun!
