No admission needed. Parking: There is a small parking area near the theater entrance.

General opinion: It's a must-see.
Attractions and activities: It is a beautiful place to visit. It has a spectacular views of the overall architecture, sculptures, lake, swan and other birds, huge trees, green grass areas. Kids can climb and play in the big trunks of some big trees. It's fun.
Dining: I did not see any on site vendor to sell hot meals. Bringing picnic food is a good choice. Sitting in the green grass area around the lagoon, watching the swan in the lake, and having picnic with family will make you feel happy.
