we had planned to spend a quiet Sunday morning in the gardens, as it happened less than an hour was all we needed. It is nice in here, but there's really very little to spend. We plan to return to Gib' in the spring, I think the gardens will show us a better side at that time of year.

Was a hot day and this was a great place to wander and view the fabulous trees, shrubs, flowers and cacti. Very shaded and tranquil. Needs a tea room!

The Gardens could be a little better cared for but all in all, a very sedate and peaceful place to visit.

I understand the Botanic gardens are linked with Kew gardens, but it's not obvious from the run down condition they are in. The gardens although run down are still worth a visit as there are still some unique plants and trees to be seen. There is a fund started to raise money to restore the gardens to their former glory.

Unfortunately I thought the gardens very run down, not much planting and not much maintenance. Even the bits the public can't visit look rundown. The paths are a hazard, but the playground is inspired.

However, during this visit there were constant weddings taking place which meant music and noise so it was not the sort of place you wanted to sit in for too long. Having said this, it is a wonderful location to have... More
