  • I can not believe I never been here before. It was such a lovely playground for toddlers and older kids too. With various slides and obstacles, a mini shop to pretend play, wide open space yet easy for parents to sit and have their kids within eye sight, it's such a great place for family time. There's a cafe within. Have to say the coffee was just average and food was quite on pricey for just a simple quich and side of salad. Lovely ladies tho!
  • Lovely place - nature abound and not too far. Google recommends it for a wedding place but I advise against it severely. This is more of a park than anything else, unsuited for formal events.
