“Southsea Rose Garden”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

A beautiful place which is away from the beach and any noise. The perfume from the roses
greets you as you enter this lovely place. There are seats all around where you can relax away
from "the world" . The roses are perfect at this time of year and are very well tended by the
Council gardeners. On the left as you enter there is a framed plan of each Rose Bed with the
names of the roses, which is very useful should you wish to find one you really love and purchase
it in a Nursery somewhere. Look for this lovely place to the east of Southsea Beach just past
the model village. Not suitable for young children to run around.

“Perfect”

Romantic and peaceful. Simply lovely as it's away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the island.

“Excellent rose garden”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014 via mobile

Visited in June, which of course is the height of rose blooms.
Most are low down - 1 foot high - with a pergola of climbing roses around the perimeter.
Lovely colour and scent.
FOC to enter.
The Japaese garden was more plain.

“Peace”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014

peace
a rare commodity
here u will find it
it is amazingly quiet and away from the maddening crowd
to walk round
or
sit and ponder
it promotes it's own feeling of tranquillity

take time out
and
experience it

“BEAUTIFUL”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014

It was a glorious day when we visited, roses in full bloom. The different colours all compliment each other. The little Japanese garden was a bit overgrown.
