Base of the state's department of culture, You can expect expositions, performances, etc. The garden area is nice to walk around in the afternoon.

These gardens were lovely and well kept. Spent a bit of time wandering around with a group I was chaperoning. Visited in 2013, it was so nice.

The gardens are closed! No problem. It gave us more time to explore and we found a cool market behind the walls across from the park. There sure are a lot of Telcel stores in Cuernavaca!

Wonderful park. During the Day of the Dead celebrations in early November, one can see a lot of flower decked altars. Many vendors sell snacks and drinks near the large fountain.It was very crowded when we visited because of these celebrations.Perhaps it is more peaceful, during non holiday days. Definitely worth visiting.

Great place! Worth visiting and learning learing some history. There were lots of vendors who sold local fare. I bought some mole paste. Lovely environment.

We went. The end of April and there were only a few flowering shrubs. No planted flowers. The rose garden had no rose plants in it. Only the front fountain was working. The streets in Cuernavaca had more flowers than this garden!

The Borda Gardens are a lovely place to walk around and enjoy the natural beauty of Cuernavaca. Lots of pools and fountains and many different flowers, plants and trees. It's a lovely calm Oasis in the city.

Enjoyed the Borda Gardens and the chance to row off some calories from our trip. You can rent a row boat and use it on a pond that contains some colorful ducks and many turtles. I think I would have enjoyed this much more if there were more flowers. Since my visit was in April, there should have been lots... More
