“Before Sunset”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

Besides Victoria Island, Canada, this is the most beautiful layout of Botanical Gardens that I've been to. Indescribale splendors include the Rose Garden, Japanese Garden, Rainforest Walk -- it's like walking through the lens of a Ron Fricke picture. I took a hundred beautiful pictures on my own, and many memories themselves serve as my repertoire of nirvana recall. My hours there were so simple but so unforgettable. I laid out flat on the ground and collected grass stains on my clothes without regret. I saw exotic birds from yonder. I leaned on the bridge. I put my nose down to blossomed roses. I inhaled big breaths. I wiggled my toes.

“Gardens are a must”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

The gardens are a great place for a picnic and day out. I am looking forward to visiting in spring when the cherry blossoms are out. Do yourself a favour and visit them sometime.

“Beautiful gardens”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

Lovely gardens and ponds with bridges to walk over. A rainforest walk, and easy walking paths etc. well worth a visit. Best to drive to gardens because although they are close to shops they are at the bottom of a very steep hill.

“Reasonable diversion from the crowds”
Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

Rambling paths and a few nice spots for viewing but not much peace and quiet on a Sunday. Well tended but not all plants labelled so weren't always sure what we were looking at.
