Great park, free entrance

The park is well-maintained and a great spot for a nice stroll or picnic. It offers little more than a collection of trees and plants, but is worth a visit!

It's a fine place to go if you have nothing to do and you maybe want to have a picnic. It doesn't have much of anything in the way of a garden. It's more just a large area with trees and benches.

I must say a nice place to get in touch with nature and even have picnics. Beautiful trees and flowers, surroundings are very clean and well maintained. Great for a family getaway and also to take pictures.

We thought this place was beautiful. And free admission was great. The different trees are really well established and nice to see. It started to pour while we were here and we hid under the garcinia tree.

The scenery is gorgeous. Though there are limited benches, there is extensive space for picnics and space for your own seating arrangements. No ball sports are allowed but there are hills to climb for a little hike and the zoo is adjacent to the gardens so there is no shortage of opportunity for adventure

This botanical garden is more of an expansive park. There are a few trees and flowers to see however, it isn't very extensive in its selection of greenery.

We saw several small animals and also took pictures of the beautiful trees and flowers. This is a very nice garden and we enjoyed the afternoon spent here. There were people having pick-nicks and enough shade to hide from the sun.

This is a nice botanical garden in the Queen's Savannah - a big expanse of greenery in the capital city. I think some of the species need a bit maintenance, but in general, the garden is well kept and full of information. The views, with the trees and the flowers are superb. It was almost empty when we visited, and... More

A wonderful garden to visit to enhance your knowledge of tropical plants. Well kept and maintained garden. Take your umbrella to shade you from the sun. Fabulous

The trees were nice and the nice helped us identify the types of trees and where they were from. Disappointed that the flowers were locked and we could only see them thru fences. We were told to allow about an hour and that was a good amount of time.
