“beautiful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

this place was great to walk around! we spent hours in there and would've stayed longer if we had the time. It appeared to be the case that people were just lounging, having picnics etc. we even saw a wedding photo session and the whole set up for the ceremony! you should definitely give yourself a few hours to walk around!

“Beautiful place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2013

This is a beautiful place. It has an orchid area, which I had great expectations about, but did not have as many flowers as I expected, though the ones it had were beautiful. Then, we sat in a grassy area, which was nice, but very crowded. Good site!

“Free public park with outstanding exhibitions”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2013

Right off the metro line, totally worth seeing the various displays in the gardens. Exhibits span tropical to desert flora. Easily walkable and fantastic on the eyes.

“Butterfly house is a must”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

Had a beautiful trip to the gardens which must also look amazing at night when the Christmas lights are on. It's very well laid out and so relaxing. It's free to enter and the butterfly house was just incredible - being so close to the creatures and seeing all the their stages on display, very helpful and friendly staff. Saw iguanas, humming birds and plenty of other animals and birds. Well worth a visit. I would come back.
