This place took our breath away. The colour hits you as you walk through the entrance. It's welcoming courtyard has clean, efficient services offering various food facilities, shops and shady seating areas. On one of the hottest days of the year we were still able to find a cool quiet place to enjoy our lunch.. The gardens are of a standard seldom seen, with walk ways winding their way through the old cement quarry to lead you to vistas over sunken gardens, rose gardens, Japanese and Italian gardens all cleverly interlaced with waterways to offer audio enhancement to the bombardment of perfumes and clever landscaping. Disabled access appeared well thought out allowing visits to the majority of the gardens. We were so impressed we returned later the same evening, re entry free on same day, to enjoy the concert in the park. As the sun set the atmosphere totally changed as the garden became a wonderland of light. With the park remaining open until 10pm it is there is time to re turn to all your favourite spots and experience their transformation. The gift shop and coffee shop were both still trading as we left just before 10pm. Well worth the entrance fee. All facilities clean and well maintained.
