Lovely quiet oasis

Lovely quiet oasis away from the crowds. Varied planting and pools with fish and turtles. ? Nice for a quiet potter for half an hour.

We stayed at The Rock Hotel which overlooked the gardens. We loved strolling through the gardens on our way back to the hotel. Lots of very vibrant plants. Good variety of gardens, although interestingly some parts are closed to people going in to them. At present they are in the process of building a greenhouse and improving part of the... More

Very few visitors to the Rock make it as far as the Alameda. Most get as far as the Cable Car and head up the Rock to see the apes then descend down to the waiting taxis and whisked away to their ship or Casemates. The gardens are well kept and have resisted the inevitable modernisation of the world. Walking... More

We stayed at the Rock Hotel and explored these gardens over our stay in Gibralter. Really lovely with lots to see. Well maintained and if you have small children a good playground.

We had a lovely walk around here. Lovely to see so many different plants and flowers. There are different vegetable patches....charity or school organised...nice to see. There is also a small animal sanctuary to see for which a fee is chargeable. Entrance to gardens is free.

The gardens had a great entrance to be proud of and right in the middle was a sunken garden where a wedding was being planned this was the best part of the garden as well as the animal park with the gardens. I think the gardens were mostly native plants and I think I was expecting more as I have... More

An extensive collection of plants of all kinds but also a good place to see many types of wildlife. As well as the butterflies, bird-life, reptiles & amphibians and insects to be spotted in the gardens in general there is a not-to-be-missed mini wildlife park which is made up both of animals that have been confiscated from illegal trade and...

What a beautifully tranquil spot and right in front of our Hotel! We actually missed seeing the animals as reviewed by another T.A. reviewer. We saw all the gardeners working busily away to keep it all looking fabulous. A couple in our hotel were getting married in the gardens and I wish we were around to see the wedding….. Apparently...

Beautiful gardens/park, with some fantastic plants. Hidden in the upper part of the gardens is a lovely little zoo, run by volunteers. There's also a nice little playground for kids.
