This place gets 5 stars, solely for its amazing Bonsai tree collection. The best collection I've ever seen, with a wide variety of trees.

Really well designed section of the garden - it's right at the top so make sure to go. The rest of the park is good maybe 4/5 stars.
Loved it! Well I love botanical gardens in general but it's a very pleasant, chill way to see the flora and fauna, it does cost to get in but I think it was like 4€ and if you're a student with ID you can get a discount. Nice little break from a little tourist jaunt.
