A short stroll in this beautiful tranquil garden helps to recharge your energy. This garden offers a different experience during the differnt seasons - very colourful in spring, a much needed shelter during the hot summer months, a carpet of brownish leaves in autumn and an ideal walking area during winter months. One should also visit the adjoining president's kitchen... More

Beautifully laid out and presented with an abundance of wildlife to observe. Great relaxing few hours strolling around well maintained gardens. Take a camera and indeed, take lunch, and just relax.

So I've only found out about this place thanks to my brother who lives in Malta, but wow! First of all- a must for kids! Different kinds of animals, some of them walk around freely (I've seen only peacocks), fountains, beautiful gardens... A very nice place to spend a day in- a picnic, just a stroll... Whatever you like! It... More

Based across the road, we wandered into the gardens. The air was instantly cooler and the pace a little slower. By October much of the colour was gone, but summer should be ablaze. Plenty of local families spend time here which creates a lovely atmosphere.

I first visited San Anton in 1987. Things haven't changed much since then. I returned on December 5th thus year while holidaying in Malta and the Gardens are still beautiful with black swans and Peacocks strutting around. There was a Christmas fayre while we were there with singing and it certainly put you in the mood for Christmas. It's worth... More

Don't miss out on seeing these gardens...quiet place,free entry and some lovely fountains make it worthwhile to visit...When flowers are in full bloom it will be gorgeous.Peacocks and fat cats roam around and plenty of seating too.

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.

Visiting in November, naturally the flowers were past best, but enjoyable nonetheless. 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.
