Very pretty and well looked after, there are several benches should you need a rest and some very pretty bridges that go over the river.

Lovely trip down the river; the Gardens were a good walk but not spectacular. Lots of family and sports on a Sunday.

A place to do a nice walk and to enjoy a good afternoon in a sunny day. The garden is beautiful and costs nothing.

This is a beautiful well kept little place to sit with a coffee and watch the world go by. There is seating dotted along the walkway and you can watch the punting boats go by in the warmer months. The gardens do get locked in the evening, so be aware when visiting.

Lovely spot for a picnic or to read in the center of the city. Note it is locked at night so only try to visit during daylight hours.

We sat here by the river to eat our lunch and watched the gondoliers as they took people into their punts and poled away up the river! The gardens are beautiful, idyllic! I shall always remember the hour we spent there.

After a wander through and along, we ate our packed lunch on a bench there yesterday in the sun. Idyllic setting.

Lovely garden - well tended with lovely riverside walks. Could do with a quality Coffee Shop. Also needs policing better - undesirables take up residence there.

Just a lovely place to walk around and enjoy the sunshine, old stone arches, colourful flower beds, and watch the barges go by on the river.
