“Historic location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2014

Finding Australian eucalyptus trees represented in the gardens added to the historic importance of this area for us. There is lots to see if one explores the edges and various buildings around. Current renovations and restoration of part of the gardens is intended to enhance the historic value - we trust that it will.

“Oasis in the city center”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2014

Took a couple of pleasant strolls here during our stay in Cape Town. I did not encounter any homeless beggars here. I did on some other walks on some side streets. The gardens are inhabited with lots of squirrels and birds. A lot of renovation was being done at this time.

“Worthwhile Visit if you are in the area”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2014 via mobile

If you were in the area, a worthwhile attraction to add to your trip. Fairly well maintained and interesting if one takes the history into consideration. Good for a picnic and a walk.

“nice, if a bit run down”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2014

The gardens have become so run down in the past few years. I remember them being dense and filled with ponds and tadpoles amomg other things. Nowadays there are homeless persons begging at every bend, and the birds are still out of control ;) Squirrels are still around, and are one of the little highlights :-) the restuarent in the middle has remained unchanged (I'd go back again), and one now gets a bit of free wifi while strolling through. The statues also arent being kept nicely. It's nice to go to because I knew it used to be beautiful, but can still be good on a nice summersday.
