Stumbled across these gardens after crossing the winding pedestrian bridge from the waterfront. Follow the signs down the road and the gardens are on your right. Free entry and free roaming around the gardens and the cool room in which thousands of plants thrive! Walked...More

Beautiful orchids to see, many varieties. Bigger property than it looks when entering. Would be improved with a guide or more information. Small refreshment stand and small craft shop on property.

Beautifully designed garden with hips of different orquids. Lovely to enjoy a few hours walking around and enjoying the peaceful quietness of the garden. The entrance is free. I would recommend to go in the late afternoon because it hasn't got many shaded areas.

Across the lovely bridge and up past the government building. A slight hike but worth it. Not especially large in area but kept us occupied for over an hour. Not many people on our visit and free to enter.

Walked here over the bridge and just down the road. Really enjoyed the free visit and saw some amazing flowers. There is a high variety of flowers here, not all were in bloom but I’m assuming this as being seasonal. I wasn’t however disappointed.
