“Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2012

Definitely worth a look. I walked around for a few hours and there are amazing gardens and views of the city. I was there for 3 hours but you could go for as long as you like.

“Amble along, if you have a few hours to spend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2012

The gardens are large, and along a hill, so this adds additional charm. Well laid out, with many locals enjoying the gardens, this was a very pleasant way to spend a few hours. The rose garden looks very nice, although we were there in May, when it wasn't all in bloom. Take the funicular up, and wa
K down, after a visit to Zealandia. Great way to see the city views as well!
