“Welcome shade”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

We enjoyed this but I I expected vegetables as the brochures said "over 600 vegetables"There were lovely little corners to sit out of the sun and we saw a turtle in the lake. Parts of the gardens are a little tired and "threadbare" but we still enjoyed the time away from the traffic

“Nice enough”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

The gardens are OK to wander through, but there are no impressive plants or flowers on show. A good place to relax if you have some spare time.

“Nice quiet walk, but not too impressive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2012

It is worth the tram ride to visit to take a free walk through the gardens; however, as botanical gardens go, these aren't too impressive. The grounds are overgrown with grass and trees, which somewhat takes away from the flowers. Be sure to check out the other interesting attractions when you first come in - like the insect hotel! Odd, but interesting.

“Not for winter”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2012

A place of solitude where you can wander and have no fear of being troubled by bikes or dogs. Not much colour in winter but is set in a very natural environment
