We were looking forward to visiting and it was nice. But there was lots closed. The wildlife park was closed even though it was within the times it stated it was to be open. A lot of the gardens were locked, we would have liked to go down to the koi but it was locked. However, what gardens were open... More

This garden is lovingly tended. It is an astonishing oasis in this crowded and often noisy place which is Gibraltar. Relax and stroll along the meandering paths, admire the bougainvillea and the shady tall trees. Sit a while and rest. Don't just dash to the Cable Car and miss this experience. It is just next door and absolutely worth making... More

The cunning enter from nearby The Rock Hotel on Europa Road, and meander downhill through the gardens. Botany and the inevitable scraps of... More

I visited this place and strolled through the peaceful gardens. Lots of lovely paths to follow. The hidden gem is the wonderful wild life park hidden away within the gardens. Its prime purpose is to protect wildlife that have been abused through tourism. They are funded but desperately need the funds from visitors to uphold the good work they do.... More

Again, worth a stop off and wander through the gardens. No-one was around on this visit so it was peaceful and calming. Nothing to dislike. Enjoy.

For a small space there is much to admire in these gardens. There is plenty of seating throughout the gardens to enjoy the peace and tranquillity. The wildlife sanctuary was well designed and although I thought the fee a little steep, you soon realise that it is well worth it as the sanctuary is actually a rescue centre for animals... More

If you like to relax during a stay in Gibraltar, go to Alameda Gardens. You find a variety of typical Mediterranean plants and endemic species.

An oasis of calm in the hustle and bustle that is Gib. Take a picnic and spend some time soaking up the atmosphere...
