In the center of the garden there is a nice cafe with outdoor seating, fresh baked goods and coffee (and a bathroom). Bring a book and... More

When the sun is out this is a lovely place to be but you will not be alone. Try to go early or late for a little peace amid the huge variety of trees and plants, the tropical and sub tropical glass houses and a lively little cafe. You queue for your food and drink which they pack into a... More

Near the zoo. Open till 19:00, but the greenhouses are close at 16:00. Nice park to walk at the end of the day, aybe after visiting the zoo. The metro is few meter away.

The gardens are beautiful and well kept. Lots of different species of plants from all over the world. Maybe some more information about the plants would be welcome, as well as a toilet (if there is one, we didn't see it or any signs leading to it). It is slightly isolated from any restaurants so maybe consider this in case... More

A wonderful quiet place (except on Sunday) midst of the city. Take your time and you feel like in heaven. A lot of plants from all over the world and many places to rest. It´s a place to make a short break from the world.

A nice place to go for a walk and greenhouses with a large variety of plants. Shame that the cafe/Restaurant doesn't seem to be running in Winter.

Notice that it is a BIG garden and you will need time to see it all. I personally did not had time and left before finishing... More

Want to get out of the hustle and bustle of the city, then head for the Botanical Gardens, These are not the largest gardens but they are magnificent. Plenty of nooks to explore and the green houses are beautifully maintained. Take some lunch and a good book and disappear for an afternoon, and the best part is it's FREE!
