“Good to visit if you have time, sunday's free entrance”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2013

I was expecting more color in here, but the visit is ok when you have the time. there is a small lagoon where you can rent a rowing boat for 10 pesos 15 mins or 15 pesos 30 mins very cheap.

there are some ducks around and several fountains not that awesome. the trees are beautiful some are hundreds of years old it seems. there is a roses garden area but i didn't see any.

well in may probably there are no flowers in this garden or more colors than green, so in my experience it is a good walk.
the garden is a 30 mins walk and keep moving.

“Haciendas have better grounds....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2013

The Borda Gardens were fairly disappointing. Skip them and have lunch at Las Mananitas, Hacienda de Cortez, or Hosteria Las Quintas - all have better gardens than Borda!

“Very nice garden and cultural center”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2013

The garden is very big and exuberant. It has many fountains and a little lake where you can rent small rowing boats. There's also rooms for art expositions and a very nice concert hall.

“Pretty gardens, nothing spectacular”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2013

Nice botanical gardens, fun to walk around for a little while. There is a man made lake where it is possible to rent boats. It seems to be a popular place for teenage couples to be alone.

“Nice escape”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2013

Nice to wander through gardens and escape the intensity of the city, go with a bit of time and read a book on a bench or hire a boat and take a row on the pond with a giant alebrije.
