“Worth when magnolias in bloom”
Reviewed March 15, 2012

There are four botanic gardens in Kiev (2 of them are less known than 2 other), and this one is more a park than a botanic garden. Yes, it has scientific territories with limited access and an orangery accessible a couple times a week, but the rest of territory is a park with free access across a year, except time when magnolias are in bloom - usually at April. With about of ten varieties of magnolia it takes about 2-3 weeks. At this period entry fees are taken.
No services inside except WC and a playground for children, but you can buy some food/drinks/icecream near the entry aside University metro station. Wheelchairs accessible via side or bottom entries.

“A delight at any time of year”
Reviewed October 3, 2011

An informal botanical garder set up as a functional part of a major city. Locals stroll through here in the course of their daily activities. Squirrels are abundant, is you take some walnuts and hit the shells together they will come out to take them from your hand.
