A day in nature that sits on the edge of urban life was just what was called for on this beautiful Sunday morning. We had a vigorous walk in the hillside. Wearing basic hiking boots made it easier to walk the rocky paths that were clearly marked. There were pathways that we could choose that were evenly paved our going up into the Bush which created a bit more adventure. Plaques marked geological features that also enhanced my understanding of the view. There is plenty to enjoy at this well kept nature reserve. An anytime favorite.

Beautiful park with a lovely waterfall. Great for picnics and hiking. Lovely place to spend a day in the great outdoors. Went on a busy day with a nice flea market and live performances. Great place for kids and adults alike, the kids play area was also good. The swings could be better maintained and so could be the toilets. Restaurant was okay too.

Beautiful garden, with a somewhat intense hike up the hills though. But its definitely worth it once you get to the top, the views are magnificent and span as far as the eye can see. An awesome way to start your Saturday or Sunday. I had gone for a hike, specifically so I did not get a chance to explore the garden and walking trails. I will certainly go back to explore more soon.

Beautiful, calm, clean and well looked after. You can have your picnic peacefully at the venue. Entrance fee is quite affordable. There's also a hiking trail for the whole family. Oh not to forget the gorgeous and breathtaking waterfall. On site restaurant too!
