Very nice park in the city centre. Relaxing to stroll through. We were there on a Sunday morning and I was expecting/hoping to see much more use of the park (more families, activities, etc.) so that was the only disappointment.

I really loved it, a wee walk around the garden in a nice weather, full of life and people walking around and playing all games. Ulster museum is just next door so have good time for the garden :)

Wonderful flower beds of tulips. Enjoyed the palm house and we were there at rhododendron time which was great as we have missed them at home. Lovely to stroll through. Also toilets available and then a nice coffee shop in the museum.

This is a good place to take a rest from being a tourist! Some beautiful displays and close to the university and the museum. Plan a trip to all three for a few hours.

The gardens are fantastic to wander around in decent weather, stop for a picnic, or just sit and watch passers by. Check out the Victorian Palm house and Tropical ravine with its fascinating carnivorous plants. Plus its all free !

I grew up near this park, I often revisit it when back home. Its a lovely place. Near Queens the gardens, green houses, museum and general walks are very pleasant indeed. Lots of quiet little spots to chill out in. I think its well managed so you dont see (too many) idiots drinking and kicking a ball around ruining the... More

While wandering the area near out guest house, we stumbled upon the Botanic Gardens. Beautilful. Tulips in bloom, lovely stroll. Open until sunset.

The tulips in April were beautiful. The greenhouse is free to go in and wander and enjoy the warmth and tropical plants. I am looking forward to seeing the "herbaceous border" in action soon as well as of course the rose garden. Some pretty flowering trees. A nice spot to visit and enjoy a sunny day (when there is one)... More
