From the top, visitors can capture the stunning panoramic views of the complete garden.
A 400-meter walking track at the park offers visitors the opportunity to enjoy leisurely walks amidst the floral artistry. The track will also be used for daily entertainment shows including costume and floral parades, street performers, Zumba session and other physical and recreational activities. Visitors will be welcomed by some of the most popular and prominent cartoon characters at the main entrance and be treated to skillfully designed 3D shapes of life-size animals.
