Lovely quiet garden with benches to sit and relax. Came here during the heat of August and found it very restful and cool in the shade.

Very glad you found some cool in the Garden. Some of the plants struggled in the heat and we have been grateful for the recent rain

Although small this garden is an interesting representation of the physic gardens of old. The current heatwave/drought meant that it did not look at its best but it provided an interesting stroll as well as a pleasant place to sit and relax and ponder nature!...More

Not huge but worth a see. Cool to look at all the fruit trees and other plants seeing what they are. We paused for a minute or 10 on a bench which was very peaceful.

This place is nice at any season, favourite of local office workers who whip there to enjoy their sandwich on a bench at lunchtime. Probably my favourite place in town, great work by volunteers!

We took the kids on a hidden rock around petersfield and ended up here, was quite surprised how quiet and relaxing it was in here and a vast variety of plants to look at.

The Garden has proved to be a good hunting ground for Hidden Rocks. Hope the children were successful whilst you were able to relax in the Garden. Thanks for the 5 star award.
