Probably more attractive when there are more flowers. After the very poor weather most of the flower beds were looking rather sad. Nonetheless it is still a pleasant place to walk or sit and contemplate the nature of life...

My parents walked through these gardens when they were courting, and I have done the same. Wonderful memories of peace and tranquility. The sent of flowers is a must at the right time of year. I just hope the council keep up with the maintenance that is so badly needed on a continuous basis otherwise a small peace of history will be lost, where tourists will become bitterly disappointed. Keep up the good work Portsmouth, its not going unnoticed.

A tradional garden right on the sea front. Not very big,but nice for a stroll. Well maintained,its a tradional sea front garden dating back to Victorian times. Not far from the Rose gardens/canoe lake gardens.
