This one features two lakes and the first one is Saltwater Lake. This expansive garden is surrounded by waters from the Saltwater Creek and showcases a large collection of tropical fruit trees and shrubs. It displays a delicate balance among animals, plants and water within its environment.
Freshwater Lake, on the other hand, is a large garden that showcases a palm collection, freshwater and swamp plants as well as lake. Established in 1975, Freshwater Lake has been developed into a swampy, safe haven and home to various bird species such as black ducks, black-necked storks, cormorants, and magpie geese.
