there is a garden and rocks, but not sure it is really worth noting?! my garden has some rocks but not sure id take guests down there and point them out. its okay, sort of love Portsmouth so if you have a 'Rock Garden' make it noteworthy, perhaps the understated ness is the point and lost on a putz

This would be lovely to walk through when it’s all green and healthy. Due to the dry heat we have had, everything was all dried out and was like walking through a desert. Situated just of the sea front, so plenty to do in and around. Would definitely like to visit again when it had a bit more life to it and would be a perfect place to have a picnic. Can’t see anyone spending any more then 20-30 mins max here.

We have just visited the Rock gardens what a shame, I believe they were flooded by the sea and they are trying to get them back to there old state but I think they are still worth a visit as there is still a lot of colour there and the sweet smell as you walk round is lovely and it is so quite and peaceful.

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!
