These gardens are very close to Villa Bologna so do the two together. The bus stops outside. These are formal gardens which have evolved over hundreds of years. The Presidential Palace sits within them. A very pleasant peaceful place.

There is quite an area to cover, Goldfish pond, Terrapin "park" (you'll see why), kitchen garden, and flowers and shrubs, and all happen to be the ground of the President of Malta's home. The café (thru' palace and toward kitchen garden) is a very reasonably priced stop off... More

What a great surprise this charming park was. On a Sunday morning with a beautiful day we enjoyed our brief visit. The gardens are beautiful, the trees, the ducks, swans and peacocks! Free, easy to walk, many places to sit and relax.

Maybe it was the season of the year but we were very disappointed with these gardens. The tourist info says they are the best gardens to visit in Malta? Don't waste your time here.

These are large gardens surrounding the President's Palace in Malta. These gardens have been there since the times of the Order of St. John. Very well kept, better excellently kept gardens. They contain local indigenous trees and a large collection of mediterranean, south African and south American trees. Peacocks and ducks run at liberty in the gardens with cats around.... More

Like so many who were brought up in Malta in the 1960s,this was a place where kids were brought to run around safely and keep cool.It has not lost any of its attraction and charm.The cafe has timpana and coconut cake to die for.The goldfish,swans,ducks and terrapins still attract you to the ponds.I enjoyed the exhibition of cactus and the...

it's quite pretty but if you are short of time there are other things to see and do that are far more interesting.

So worth a walk around the gardens which attracted young, old, families and couples. Very well maintained and historical too. We went early morning and had the park pretty much to ourselves.

Visited the park as part of day trip with a wedding group, great taking lovely pictures with family and friends, all different types of plants and trees with explanations and other information. Some nice wildlife also, birds, fish and lots of cats!

We caught the X3 bus which stops nearby.The gardens are really nice especially considering the hot climate in Malta.There are still irrigation systems dating back to the Knights of St.John.You can only see the outside of the palace because this is the home of the president. In all we spent a very enjoyable afternoon there at no cost apart from... More
