These gardens have a bounty of secluded areas that can only be found by exploration, and those that are not secluded are breathtakingly beautiful.
A great place to picnic with friends, wedding ceremony, celebrate birthdays, or simply to lay on the grass and watch the puffs of clouds roll by.
Whether you walk around the 'tan' or through it - it's glorious any time of the day.
Whether you visit by yourself or with friends - still enjoyable.
I live locally and visit the Gardens every other day - it's my backyard and I LOVE IT!

Wonderful space for the kids, mine loved running up and down the slopes, and rolling about. We loved the shady trees and the space:)

It is a gem hidding in the hustle and bustle of the city. The landscape is very well designed.The varieties of the plant keep the discovery of the park fun and interesting. Swans and ducks by the ponds add the extra liveliness to the park. It is a nice place to stroll along and to picnic with friends and family.

The Royal Botanic Gardens are renowned throughout the world for its landscape, plant conservation and collections. They deserve to be. The gardens are great for picnics, a gentle stroll, a place to take visitors or catch up with friends. The information about the collections is good. Favourite places are the Volcano, Herb Garden and the Perennial Border.
