“unimpressive”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

Pretty spot, but with its lack of info and unusual plants, it could pass for any another pocket park.

“suprising”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

It's quiet and nice, you don't expect to see this in a university environment. Partly inside, partly outside and for free, in summer you will find staff enjoying there lunches.

“Beautiful place for relax”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

Very beautiful and quite place. I was delighted with the beauty of rhododendrons. The garden looked like a sea of big and colourful blossoms. It was an amazing view.

“Wonderful botanical garden near the Citadelpark in Ghent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

If you are in the Citadelpark to visit S.M.A.K. or the Fine Arts Museum, walk for a further 5 minutes to visit this 3 ha full of over 10,000 pplants. It is gree of charge, it has a lake, green houses and a wonderful cafe.
Perfect for a break!

“Gent Park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2012

A haven of peace away from the traffic to sit and admire, and read quietly after a visit to the Beaux Arts Gallery.
