Well worth a look, there are some lovely plants from mega palms down to little chilli plants. Nice and warm in there too if you are a bit chilly!

Was a beautiful walk through the park- very relaxing- lots to see. Enjoyed people watching- many people having picnics or tossing a ball around. Worth the see.

Visited these gardens recently as was staying near by. They were beautiful and worth a stroll but were busy at lunchtime with many people obviously availing of during their lunchtime break. There was a lovely assortment of plants and flowers and although busy very tranquil and quiet. Worth a visit

Beautiful plants and flowers and lots of benches to sit on with a take out lunch! Have been here loads and it's very peaceful (except in freak hot days in summer when space on the green is limited)

Beautiful well kept gardens- a super oasis within the city. Really enjoyed the Rose garden and the Palm House-very reminiscent of the Palm House at Kew Gardens though on a smaller scale.
