You can see these gardens were once lovely. However, now they just collect the entrance fee and don't upkeep the place. Also, camera fee of 2000 CFA is out of proportion to the 500 CFA entrance fee and considering state of gardens. I walked around in 20 minutes. There are some old German graves worth a stop at for history buffs.

I visited the gardens in December 2010. Paid CFA 1000 entrance fee plus CFA 500 for my photocamera. I was the only visitor. Unfortunately the garden does not live up to its promise in my Bradt guidebook. Apparently it had gotten a boost in 2008, but in 2010 it had fallen back to a state of disrepair. All the trees are still there, and the grass is kept short, but all info panels were empty and broken, and only a few trees carried a sign with the species.

Hidden gem: The little Commonwealth War Grave in the back of the park, by the Limbe River. About a dozen very well kept military graves from 14-18 and 40-45.

Another hidden gem: Restaurant Hot Spot, opposite the main garden entrance, on top of a cliff above the Ambas Bay. Good food, cold drinks and great free and a sea breeze.
