Hamilton Gardens

On the way back from  Ngaruawahia Christian Youth Camp, we visited the Hamilton Gardens. This  garden is humongous and is divided into many themed gardens. The Waikato River flows through it  offering scenic views with wild ducks and other water birds meandering down the river. The good news is, Entrance is Free for everyone here!.

We had to reach home before it got dark,

A must visit we were told and I agree 100%. I hope one day we will go for a leisurely stroll again.
