“Well kept and a magnet to attracting all types of people”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013

The gardeners were very friendly and go out of their way to answer any questions you may have. There are small pools with tadpoles and minnows. Stephen the head gardener has only one objective, that is to make the Rock Gardens the most popular attraction in Dundee

“Wonderful gardens”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

These gardens are maintained by volunteers for the most part & as they are local, we visit on a regular basis. On a clear summers day, they are a fabulous place to while away an hour or two

“Romance is in the air!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2013

This is one of the nicest small gardens I have visited. It is beautifully laid out with tables, rock pools etc. I have found it to be quiet and peaceful, and the view over the river is wonderful. There is a good restaurant within walking distance(the Glass Pavillion), just the thing after a walk.I have sat there with my significant other, and although we are pensioners, it simply awakes the romance!Give it a try,preferably when it is not raining!

Every time I walk these gardens i cannot fail to be impressed at the lawns,beds and changing vistas. Love to "fish" for tadpoles in the Spring.
