“A PASS THROUGH PARK”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is a park in the city centre.It is not as appealing as it should be due to lack of proper maintenance. in the 90s couples used to come and have wedding photographs taken there, and indeed the scenery was beautiful. Now the City Council is not giving much attention to it.

“Serene Place”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

The gardens are located smack in the CBD of harare. The council has done well to keep the gardens there but the lawns are not as immaculately manicured as they used to be. The serenity is occasionally disturbed by the music concerts that are held there. Security is not all that good, and one would enter the gardens at night at their own risk.
Still, they are the lungs of the city and if you need to just sit, reflect and breathe relatively clean air in the city then head for the gardens.

“HIFA festival”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

The welcoming place for HIFA, but you can see the gardens are nice, and have few statues / sculptures here and there.

“Walk in the Park”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

Situated right inside Harare the place has got a lot of potential. It is however in great need of maintenance but the foliage is still in good shape and wedding phot can come out very nice.

“Pleasant Enough”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

Whilst not the most stunning park in the world, the Harare Gardens seemed pleasant enough to me. Lots of people taking an afternoon stroll. Not too dirty, and plenty of benches. It’s right next to the Art Gallery.
