First Review by maltinej

Very cool place to visit for a nice morning stroll - Edit

Big park full of many different fruit and spice trees and different flora. Has tours during the day and a big pond in the middle. Various benches to just sit and enjoy the area. The main office had a variety of different and exotic fruit to sample as well as a variety of interesting juices and candy (most not vegan). We tried a canned tamarind juice and it was very tasty! We visited the cafe next door to the office and had a vegetarian wrap with NO CHEESE and it was fine with a side order of sun chips. All in all a nice day out and a very interesting afternoon.

Pros: interesting location, fruit samples , large area for a stroll

Cons: $8 per person
