We always look for gardens to visit, quiet spots to sit and reflect. There are some steep steps to climb but we managed. You do get a picturesque view of The Rock hotel, a photo stop. The Koi carp water feature is very good and it was from this bridge we witnessed a small intimate wedding ceremony. I notice families... More

Great gardens displaying the flora and fauna of Gibraltar. Worth the visit. Currently undergoing a much needed upgrade. Interesting selections of plants and creative planting. Childrens area and animal section...terrapins etc. Nice to walk around, but a bit steep in places. A must see for the visitor to Gibraltar.

Visited to escape the cable car queue and get some well needed relief from the heat. It was well worth the visit. The Terrapins were lovely to watch.

The gardens are going through a well needed update as it was looking rather down -in the heel a year or so ago. Some areas have been replanted and now look fresh and well kept. However there is still some areas that look in need of some TLC, but it is now a work in progress. The newly revamped children's... More

Recommended by friends, glad we went. Gardens are well maintained and beautiful. Luckily my partner spotted the sign which I thought was a cafe but if you pay to go in, there are enclosures and cages with monkeys, turtles, parrots etc was worth the money as partner walked along the bridge with lemurs.

The botanic gardens in Gibraltar is lovely. Situated at the foot of the cable car it is a tranquil oasis of calm from the hustle and bustle of the ever busy town. I am not a keen gardener by any means but the gardens are well worth a nice slow stroll through.

The Alameda gardens is that oasis any city needs to have, in particular Gibraltar that looks more like a casemate than a town. The garden has an interesting collection of flowers, trees and cacti. I visited Alameda in the morning before the cable car to the Rock of Gibraltar opens (9:30). Just love it.

quiet spot gardens would be nice to visit in the spring not in December, but still enjoyable and near the cable car, the walk through the park can be quite steep, but plenty of seating where you can just sit and relax
