The park has a number of attractions including a ruined temple, nature trail, Italian garden, greenhouses, formal gardens, a miniature railway and a large pond where you can hire rowing boats and pedal boats. There is also the Cypress Walk through two parallel rows of cypress trees and the Dutch Village located on an island in the middle of one of the ponds.
