“a haven close to the town centre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

This garden is well maintainde by the local council and the flower beds are changed according to the seasons.In the summer months their is regular music from bands at the bandstands and in the holiday period there are illuminations in the lower gardens at night using candles in coloured jars which is quite unique and good fun for families to participate in

“Stunning Gardens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Bournemouth's gardens are awesome, a real oasis from the hubbub of the town. Stretching from the seafront inland for a mile or so, enjoy a tranquil walk.

“First rate introduction to Bournemouth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

We have visited Bournemouth for vary many years, and the Lower Gardens have always been our gateway from the sea.

They are always well planted and cared for, and we always walk up to the aviary, and the combination of the birds and their antics never fail to amuse.

Allow yourself an hour to cross The Square and follow the Bourne through the Middle and Upper Gardens to Coy Pond. The woodland become more interesting as you go along, and there is a board walk through the marshy areas.
