“Spring appearing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2014

Loved the trees and flowers on display after such a sad disruptive winter! Did not like to see tourists dropping " takeaway" cartons/ wrappers but I did tell them off!!!

“Amazing Garden close to the sea”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2014

The southern entrance to this 1½ mile long garden is right across the street from Bournemouth Pier. We were there in mid-April and it was amazing. Numerous flower beds with a wide variety of flowers; when they are all in bloom it is quite spectacular. We never would hav guessed that there could be such gardens in England this close to the Channel!

“beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2014

A lovely walk through the gardens from the shops to the sea front. There is a tethered balloon should you wish to see over Bournemouth from a height, however it comes with a cost of £12.50 for just over 10 minutes. The flowerbeds were colourful and well maintained. There are plenty of benches and sitting in the park on a sunny day watching the world go by is so peaceful
