“Very green antidote to organised tours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

We were a bit overwhelmed by the number of tourists in the Old Town of Tallinn, and so we took a taxi to the Botantical Gardens, some 5 miles to the east.
The gardens were always an attraction for us, and having done a bit of research back at home (on TA) we were convinced that this would always be viable for us. Unfortunately, we arrived far too early for the Palm Houses to be open. It did however, give us plenty of time to enjoy many of the features in very warm sunshine of this very large site.
Two features that were instantly visable, were the (closed) palm houses, and the dominating presence of the nearby television tower.
In the gardens themselves, there was a mixture of old favourites, like peonies and iris, together with less familiar plants. All immaculately cared for, in large traditional borders, surrounding the ponds, or as with the roses in a collection garden.
i wished that we could stayed longer.
Great place for all.

“Veerry relaxing. Забыл о гнетущей Москве”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013 via mobile

Located 300 m walk from Tetorn, TV tower. Very nice park, the largest land owner in Tallinn. No problem to reach by bus 34A from Viru square. In May not much could be seen, but just walking was a pleasure + nice winter garden with a special cactus section ))

“A little oasis”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

It was a dreary and damp day when we were there but we spent much time in the greenhouses - surprisingly full of exotics!
The grounds were being transformed from spring to summer so it was in in transition and not too much to see. A very pleasant area and easy to get to by bus.

“Beautiful garden..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2012

If you need to take time off and relax, breath fresh air and smell beautiful flowers, be one with nature - this is the place you need to go! Best time is in late spring and summer.
