These gardens in the centre of the town are really well kept and always a pleasure to stroll through - its an easy walk to the sea front with the usual benches, a bandstand quite often in use and now more cafes.

The gardens look fab in the summer and most of the year.
Nice walk from the town centre to the beach, a stream to paddle in, gardens to sit in and just watch the world go by. Hot air Balloon ride to see some great views over the town and coast.

These gardens have changed very little over the last half a century. They continue to be well maintained and attractive and a pleasant break from the busy beach and shops. New cafes have improved the facilities and the toilets are always clean and well cared for.

Lots on here in the summer holidays. Bands playing some evenings and activities for the kids. Kept very clean for how busy it gets.

I recently visited Bournemouth for the first time earlier this week. Lower gardens was a clear highlight of the trip. It exceeded my expectations and we ended up visiting it a few times during our stay. The key highlights are the balloon ride which gives a great panoramic view of all of Bournemouth, the crazy golf which offers 18 holes and fills in an hour for a decent price, the final point is the very well maintained gardens itself! Lower Gardens is also a good place to go for a coffee, hotdog or ice cream. Perfectly located just to walk through between the town and the beach.
