The Botanical Gardens was a very clean and picturesque place. My wife and I spent a leisurely Sunday evening strolling through the grounds enjoying the sights. Families were seen picnicking within the designated areas and it was as if man was at peace and in harmony with nature.

If you're looking for an area to get away from it all then this is the place. Great for family picnic or by oneself to relax. Lovely and clean.

Nice for an evening scroll or a walk through with that special someone. I don't recommend going when it's rainy though - your chances of getting wet will be very high as there are few huts in this large park.

Excellent historic and scenic spot to chill, picnic and relax alone or with loved ones. Children love the wide open spaces to run and play. Some seating and toilet facilities available but you can bring your own, or if you prefer... spread a picnic mat/sheet.

The space is so scenic and refreshing. The landscape is not only beautiful but interesting as a number of rare and exotic trees are found. This garden is ideally located next to the Emperor Valley Zoo and Queens Park Savannah. It truly adds a fresh breath to the city.

The trees are quite well labelled and the lawns are beautifully kept. This is a nice place for a gentle stroll or for a picnic. Don't expect these botanical gardens on the scale of those in other major cities, but it was a pleasant enough experience and somewhere to wander without worrying about traffic.

Maybe I was expecting the wrong thing, but when I heard Botanical garden I was visioning a lush, tropical, colorful garden. The good news is that this "park" is free. I use the word park because that is what this feels more like - a park. There isn't a lot of color here other than green and brown. A few... More
