Immaculate flower beds...traditional park designs give way to wafting perennial borders. Peter Pan bronze statue in the rose...More

Beautiful, well kept gardens - well worth a visit. Don't forget to visit the bear pit! And the lovely rock garden with the pond. There's lots of great open air theatre and music in the summer

Great botanic garden with free entry. Some interesting hidden features worth exploring. Explored using Pokemon which gave a whole different perspective.

Love the botanical gardens! Great space hidden in the city! Beautiful flowers and plants all year round! Hundreds or friendly squirrels to feed and meet! The bear pits always great to find there and the cafe is lovely up top too

Take a refreshing break from the city, in these wonderful, well kept surroundings. A sanctuary away from the fast city life.

This is a must visit place. It’s free and a very beautiful garden and greenhouses. Just do it. The selection of plants from around the world is superb, nothing else like it in South Yorkshire.
