“Tiny gardens overrun by drunks”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2013 via mobile

I went to the gardens which were nice and very well done. There was a wedding taking place which was spoiled by a group of drunken homeless people shouting and swearing. It is a shame because this could be a great place

“Pretty gardens but very small”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2013

I had read how stunnig they were, and indeed It is true they are beautiful, theres turtles and fish in the ponds and lovely water fountains.
My only advice is to not go out of your way (like we did on a 35' day!) to go to the Himeji gardens as the walk around only takes 5-10mins. The garden is very small, and whilst beautiful, I'd recommend walking there if you are in the area or intend to go for a walk through the whole Osmond park area.

“Serenity and peacefulness”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2013

Beautifully laid out. Constant vistas - and even a bush trail for the "little ones". Went about five times- and will revisit upon return to Adelaide - something special.

“I proposed to my wife here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2013

We went back to visit recently, but my first tme taking my (now) wife there was when I proposed to her. It's such a lovely garden that is very peaceful and a great hidden gem in the southern parklands. I'd lived in Adelaide for 27 years and had no idea it was there before I found it when researching proposal locations. Well worth stopping in.

Located just at the fringe of the city centre, this beautiful Japanese garden is well maintained & will give you a calming experience.
