Pretty gardens

Lovely gardens to walk through to escape the crowded areas in the city. Very pretty and peaceful. Free to enter so well worth it if you have time.

A good place to spend a couple of hours, especially if you have an interest in trees as we do. We were a little disappointed that there weren't more interesting trees but still worth the visit

Considering this is a free botanical gardens, which is rare to find, the gardens are well maintained and a stunning addition to the local park - also great for Pokemon Go players!

Feels great to see giant old trees of different species, the garden was interesting and was properly maintained. Updated name tags with description of the trees and shrubs, their age,uses, fruits...will be more appreciated

We walked a very long way to visit these gardens because we always visit botanical gardens when we travel. This one is not organized and not labeled. A great deal of work needs to be done to bring these gardens up to speed.

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.

In a city where most of the other attractions cost money this is not only free but one of the best things we did. Take an hour to walk into the park past the lake and into the botanical gardens. So much variety and little secrets

I had already talked about the Garden because it is within Victoria Park. If one is lucky enough to visit the Gardens at the right time of the year, it is absolutely outstandingly beautiful. But this garden has something for all and I never tire of visiting. Whenever I want to reflect or have just some peace from the daily... More

Some mature trees (-especially Acers) and well maintained borders make this a pleasant hour spent away from the city centre recommended.
