The gardens offer picnic areas, animal viewing, bird watching and self guided tours. Toilet facilities are scattered throughout the area for convenience.

An onsite restaurant and café serves visitors throughout the day but closes in the late evening hours. The dining options are situated among the gardens and provide a peaceful place to enjoy a meal or sip coffee.
