“Pretty Average Garden”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

When visited on a cold, windy November morning, these gardens were not at their best. They reminded me of Malta as a whole- tatty, slightly run-down and scruffy. they are not very accessable for people with walking difficulties. The paths are uneven and can be slippery, with many changes in level,and steps - all potential problems. We did not venture far and did not find the cafe but there are free toilets. Probably better in summer months. We were definitely underwhelmed!

“An Oasis”

Lovely place to have a walk round or just sit and read a paper or a book, you might even bump into the Maltese President as he often stroll round the gardens

“Nice quiet gardens”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2012

The gardens seemed a little bare, but the end of November is probably not the best time to visit. It seems to be well set out with lots of lovely trees, and plenty of different paths. There are also seats, but it was a little chilly for us on the day we visited. I would definately expect it to be a lovely place to visit on a nice warm spring or Autumn day.

“Nice Place To Visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2012

This garden is average but noteworthy. Take the time to stroll the paths and see giant poinsettas and various other plants and trees. The garden holds a few cats and birds like ducks, swans, and peacocks. The kids will love it.

“Peaceful place to walk around...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2012

This is quite a big area to walk around with a nice little cafe with very reasonable snacks. It is largely plants and trees, but has a small pond in with geese, swans etc. Just a nice quiet area to have a walk around during late afternoon, and it is free which is a bonus in this day and age....
