Absolutely divine gardens with gorgeous flowers and amazing huge trees of every shape and size. One of the best Botanical Gardens I've been to .It was were very uplifting after seeing the devastation to the city. Very sad. It was great seeing so many people out enjoying the beautiful weather. Only disappointment was the cafe wasn't open on a Public Holiday. The icecream van did a roaring trade. A very enjoyable day.

I was there in late summer, and I enjoyed all the flowers and the huge trees and the spaces. In a town that at the time was still pretty visibly affected by the earthquake it was especially lovely to find such an oasis of peace.

the gardens are free and for a small fee we were able to enjoy a guided tour on a tram with a very nice and knowledgable guide
