“Peaceful oasis in centre of city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

A stroll through the gardens gives you a taste of old colonial South Africa with its wonderful architecture. Excellent signposting to places of interest off gardens too.

“Great place to walk around”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

A beautiful place to stroll, sit on a bench or have a picnic. Also a lot of history with the Parliament Buildings, Tuinhuys and National Library. There is a restaurant and bird avery. A lot of museums around. You have to find parking on the street (at R11 per hour) but is worth a visit.

“Take a stroll here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

This is a freebie destination with lots of appeal. Nice plantings and pathways. You can enter the National Gallery from the park.

“Not the botanical garden but a nice feel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

This is not in the same class as the botanical garden, it is an old garden, with a beautiful lane where couples walk hand in hand. Small animals and birds on the grass. Nice and quiet when we visited. Took some nice pictures.
