A lovely leisurely open space in which to wander and admire the foliage. There are some ancient trees, amazing herbaceous borders and intriguing sculptures. We found the Visitor centre exhibitions interesting and enjoyed a cold drink in the Curator's House.
Just a marvellous place, even in fall there was loads of colour. The paths twist and turn through a variety of formal and informal gardens, round many ponds and other features. The kids loved the heritage rose garden and the cacti in the glass house.
Only had 3 hours to spare so took a guided tour around the gardens.Our guide Faye was excellent and informative.The tour lasts about an hour and gives you a good overview of how the gardens came about and their history since then.There is also a...More

You can get to the car park off Armagh St near the start of Park Tce and the end of Rolleston Avenue. You can drive through the park passed the tennis courts on the right and on to the car park on the left under the trees near the children's playground which is on the other side of the pedestrian bridge over the Avon River. It is quite a big car park and during the week it is usually easy to find a car park sometimes on a nice sunny weekend the carpark fills up. If there are festivals it becomes impossible to get a park.
