We visited the gardens whilst waiting for the cable cars to open... It was a nice enough place, peaceful and a reasonably maintained garden. I have seen other Botanical far more impressive with that WOW FACTOR. Here not, I was expecting more. Some overgrown bushes and flowerbeds unkept, but an ok place to stroll around in if you have nothing... More

These gardens are beautiful, and a peaceful corner for a quiet period of rest and relaxation. The plants are varied from a wide area as are the super cactus collection. Pretty water features. Plenty of bird life too.

Well worth a visit. Gibraltar being what it is open space is at a premium. This is a quiet and peaceful experience , a place to while away an hour.

Such beautiful gardens. One of the most interesting places in Gibraltar in my opinion. Choose early morning or evening for your visit if in summer, otherwise you will be boiling hot. But this refers to all places in the south. A nice addition to the London Kew Gardens.

Found the Alameda Gardens by accident, whilst looking for the cable car station. A lovely peaceful place to stroll around. There is a small animal sanctuary within the gardens (small entrance fee) well worth looking at. Run by volunteers and has pets that have been discarded or injured.

This was great spot for our family. We walked, read, and enjoyed the sights. They also had one of the best parks for kids that we have ever been to. Highly recommended.

I really enjoyed my visit to the gardens, it is small but a lot of things are contained within that small space. Worth a visit.

We loved the Botanic Gardens so much that we came back several times during our visit to Gibraltar. Each area of the garden is different so there is always something new to discover

A very nice walk through lush vegetation :) although quite a small area and only part of it is free.
