“Good in Summer !”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

Great place to take the Kids and let them burn off some energy.
There is a large playground with a flying fox towards the higher end of the park that needs a decent walk ; also some short bush walks. In the summer some great family shows in the amphi-theatre.

“tranquil place in the middle of the city”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

a great botanic garden and I've seen a few! I could have listend to the Tui for hours. Great views of the city and harbour - and a cable car as well - it ticks all the boxes. A must-see for Wellington

“Great gardens”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

A great place for the whole family - as a kid we spent hours chasing each other around the gardens and playing in the playground, as an adult I enjoy the different gardens and the tulips in spring are wonderful! The summer concert series (free) are also a great evening out - picnic and a bottle of wine listening to music!
