I have known these gardens for many years. What a run down sight they are right now. Would somebody at least cut the grass please!

A bit overgrown and could be a very nice pause on a walk along the front. Currently being refurbished as suffered from storms

Southsea Rock Gardens was lovely a few years ago when managed by a group of keen volunteers who had given up on council gardeners caring for it at all. It was full of colour and a pleasure to visit all year but now is uncared for and uninspiring. Very sad state of affairs.

Visited the Rock Gardens today - they were absolutely stunning in the Spring sunshine. Right on the seashore too.

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...
