Pretty wooded park with animals: peacpaves, pigeons, ducks, goats.. small snack available, possibility to make pony, as well as small train.
Amazing park, with lots of animals. Better than some zoo's we've been to. A lot of peacocks, parrots, and wild ducks. There is a small train kids can take a ride on and also I believe ponies?!? Also, the park has some amazing plants all over, a small bamboo forest and enormous magnolia trees. Must visit for a evening walk.
Great park. Family friendly. The peacocks are to die for!
