Having read the other reviews, my advice: let go your need to know and you will find hidden treasures here.
It isn't a highly manicured affair dependent as it is on volunteers, but that provides a particular charm to the place. The gardens offer a mix of park, woodland, greenhouses, agricultural buildings and horticultural collections interspersed with walking/running trails and pathways with only general directional signs. It's free to enter except during the Agricultural Fair that occurs over 3 days in April.
The treasures include an enormous banyan tree that tempts kids to swing on its rope-like branches, a walled garden designed for the enjoyment of the blind, an original one-room home reminding one of simpler times, the best little cafe in Bermuda (Homer's Cafe) and the Masterworks Museum that provides new exhibits every 4 weeks as well as a semi-permanent collection. (On weekends, this is the place to get a general map of the gardens).
For those, like me, who are directional challenged, I will provide what you do need to know to get there: The gardens are one mile from the City of Hamilton and are open year round and daily from sunrise to sunset. Access via Berry Hill Road, Point Finger Road and South Road. Bus routes 1, 2 and 7 go to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital, which is nearby.
I do remember an elevator in the Museum building but cannot remember if there was a ramp entrance so cannot confirm that it is entirely wheelchair accessible. The majority of the paths are level and wide so all ages and abilities should be able to enjoy the environment.
