Just off the Queens Park Savannah, this is an interesting garden. Lots of trees, green lawns. They also had an orchid house, but it was closed though you could see some of the plants from outside the fence. Seems a place where locals come to take a stroll or just enjoy the shade in the afternoon heat. Saw people on... More

These gardens are beautiful, scenic and serene. Just to walk through the trees and plants from so many places in the world, you feel the peace and quiet. To see the birds and squirrels eating fruits and scurrying up the trees and across the well kept lawn. Martial art person doing a dance while someone lie beneath a tree reading... More

This wonderfully planned and executed open space of 62 acres (25 hectares) was established not long in to British colonisation of this island; in 1818 to be exact. The Gardens boast over 700 trees, not all that grand as Botanical Gardens go, but the setting is superb, with well-laid and defined pathways, signs in both English and the botanical Latin... More

This beautiful place is very serene and lies between the Zoo and the President's house. You can also access Lady Chancellor's Hill from here. It is a good place for a stroll or a picnic. On Sunday mornings you can see some groups doing yoga here. Best time to visit is mid morning or early afternoon when the sun is... More

The gardens are a cool and peaceful place in a bustling fairly industrial city. Very nice for a stroll. Have some coconut water when walking back

I will admit to not being overly interested in gardens. However, there isn't much information on the plants/trees and why they were in the gardens. It was a very nice afternoon walk though.

There are many mature trees in this garden, all are well documented with Latin names, common names and where they're typically found. The garden is spread over a large property covered with a grassy groundcover, but there aren't a great many shrubs. Perhaps it was just the time of year. The admission is cheap, it's a nice walk, but not... More
