A tranquil and very pretty botanical retreat tucked away in Victoria Park. Ideal for a quiet rendezvous, a family picnic or just a walk alone amongst the well landscaped and very varied plantings. Not pretentious, very natural, ntious, well laid out and with connecting paths. Good signage a bonus. Easily reached by bus plus plenty of parking.

If you enjoy visiting botanical gardens then definitely make your way to the gardens in Victoria Park. There are lawns to lay a blanket and relax as well as benches. Great variety of plants to see as well.
