The immaculately kept green corridor running along the banks of the heavily canalised River Bourne is in stark contrast to the massive building sites and ugly car parks dotted around Bournemouth city Centre.

A pleasant walk from the beach to the shops and restaurants in Bournemouth, with many things to see and do for all ages.

Flowers & lawns immaculately kept even in Winter. Plenty of seats to take a break & admire the gardens or just to have a rest.

We arrived in Bournemouth for a day trip and went straight to the beach. After an hour or so of wandering around we decided to make our way back to the town centre to have lunch. We just followed the route which most people seemed to be using and ended up walking through Lower Gardens. It really is a delight... More

We enjoyed the gardens but there was some planting and changing of flowerbeds so this time not such a good display.
