“A Green Oasis”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013

The Lower (and Upper) Gardens form a welcome band of greenery stretching from near the seafront to the upper town. Trees, water, lawns, flowers: an oasis of calm offering a pleasant stroll away from the bustle of the high street. There is even Crazy Golf for the adventurous!

“oasis in Bournemouth”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

have been to Bournemouth many times over the last year or so and never tire of this beauty spot in the town , the flowers are always stunning and its nice to see a mix of young and old people enjoying this haven of beauty it never fails to impress me. I even like seeing the squirrels which seem to be more daring each time we visit , this park is stunning both day and night when the lights come on

“Beautiful gardens”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013

The gardens are beautifully kept and a delight to visit. There is a lot to see and do including crazy golf and the balloon ride to go on if you're brave enough. On occasion there is music in the bandstand , which you can listen to from the green opposite. There is a lovely secluded walk beneath the trees, behind the bandstand, where the local squirrels will come up very close and take food from your hand. A lovely place to chill out and watch the world go by.
