There's a token admission charge (official--not a scam), and many of the fountains & other improvements will not be at their prime, but this block of green space in the center of Yangon provide nice views of the Sule Pagoda, the City Hall & an old Baptist Church that recently has been spruced up. Usually not crowded, but the benches can be uncomfortable for sitting.

So this time on my trip I actually went into the gardens rather than just viewing it from outside the perimeter.
There IS a 500 Kyat entrance fee though that one has to pay in order to get inside. Either way, once inside, it's a very relaxing place to be and go for a stroll and/or take some pictures. * If you stay at the May Shan Hotel, this garden is literally right outside your doorstep.
There are lots of pretty flower beds, colorful trees, and plenty of shade and benches to enjoy (although in the heat of even a morning it might not be everyone's cup of tea to sit in the heat).

I often go to this garden to relax in the morning sunshine. Usually i see local people doing Tai Chee around the centre of the garden. I think i paid 400 kyatt for entry but cant be sure. Beware of the indian moneychangers that hang around outside though. They are notorious for ripping off Tourists !!!!

These gardens are nice to take a stroll through if you have some time and are not that big. They have some neatly hedged bushes as well as flowering plants dotted with trees.
It's also a great location for "framing" some pictures as there are some other more notable sites right near the gardens. From the gardens one will be able to see Sule Pagoda which sits just to the top northwestern corner of the grounds, City Hall to the north, the High Court to the east, and finally, the Independence Monument which is actually located right in the center part of the gardens.
Of course for myself, it was most convenient to take a nice, short morning walk in these gardens as it was only a hop skip and a jump from my hotel.
I'm not sure of the exact work that was being done, but they had this scaffolding around the Independence Monument when I visited there.
A very nice little place to visit though.
