We ve been in "Kitchen Gardens" with our 1 year old baby and although he's so young he had a good time! There are animals (fishes, ducks, emus, lamas, goats chickens and ponies), gardens, a couple of big playgrounds with slides and swings, an outside gym and a little bar where also adults can have a drink or something to...

Visited these gardens on a daytrip "Medina and central highlights" tour I think we walked approx. 300 meter through this garden, this completed the tour ! Saw just a few common flowers. I have more beautiful flowers in my own backyard. Like, in our opinion everything in Malta, far overrated.

Beautiful gardens filled with fountains, trees and a Presidential palace. An oasis in the village. Quiet, tranquil visit.

I have visited several times in past 3 years. Peaceful, smells lovely, cool. Many friendly roaming cats around the gardens. On a couple of occasions, got lucky when the President's gardens were open to the public, and one January we were there in time for the Citrus Festival. Bought lovely local products made of oranges. A thoroughly worthwhile visit. Also... More

Lovely garden in Attard, Malta. Shady with various ponds as well as a new maze. Very restful with the peace broken only by the peacock occasionally. Lots of cats are part of the attraction. Part of it is a former zoo which needs renovation, hence a score of 4. The kiosk outside the entrance sells drinks, but best avoided as... More

So after being disappointed in the Buskett Gardens (not worth going out of your way for) me and my partner went to the San Anton Gardens. We took dozens of pictures here of the flora and fauna. They have a small maze which is fun for children and playful adults. From the gardens you can reach the presidential palace which... More

As these Gardens were just over the road from our hotel, we spent a pleasant afternoon admiring the gardens and water features -a refreshing change from the busier,more bustling holiday resorts. The gardens were peaceful and we enjoyed visiting a small chapel near the Presidential Palace. A relaxing afternoon but I'm not sure it would be worth travelling here unless... More
