A truly tropical oasis of our local flora. A truly breathtaking experience that I never get tired of, even as an adult.

Well, the sun was very hot, however we played cricket, took pictures near the beautiful plants, the children enjoyed themselves. We came here after visiting the zoo, before we returned to Kapok Hotel.

If you want a place that is excitingly quiet peaceful and informative that is the place for you. Vast expanse of greenery. Lots of large trees imported from several countries well spacious and identified.

I would not give much info. This is a historical place and it is smack around the QPS. A must to visit.

I always loved visiting after going to the zoo next to it. It's quiet and peaceful. Hate that we were not allowed to play ball games though.

I enjoyed walking through the gardens and admiring all the various trees and flowers. It isn't horrible if you don't make it here, but it was a pleasant park to walk through.

The plant nurseries were all locked up on Sunday when I visited. The gardens were virtually deserted. It was a nice place to have some peace and quiet but not quite what I was expecting. I had hoped for some more informative displays explaining interesting things about the local flora. I enjoyed the walk but I was disappointed that there... More

This is a great lil secret in the middle of our capital city. This park is great for lunch time picnics and family outdoor birthday parties. It boasts very cute squirrels and birds. They are small trails and the general walk around even in the dry season is scenic and interesting. It is not for nature lovers who expect a... More
