“Purple serenity”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 December 2013

A very pretty little garden though the zen garden was a little neglected. It looked very sweet with Jacarandra petals all over one corner, as though purple had overrun the serenity ;)

“Japanese style garden on South Tce.”

A beautiful small garden in Adelaide worth a visit. Full of History and beautiful plants and bushes from Japan. Worth visiting.

“Adelaide's hidden secret”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2013

How a place in the middle of the city can be so quiet, serene, and relaxing is remarkable. If you love admiring well-kept gardens or just want to escape for a few minutes, this is the place you should visit. It is immaculately-kept and the sites and sounds will delight. Tip: Go early in the morning, around 9am, for a good chance of having the whole garden to yourself and don't forget to bring your camera along if you are an avid photographer. Would be even more enjoyable if the grounds were larger, or incorporated a teahouse.

“Tiny gardens overrun by drunks”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2013 via mobile

I went to the gardens which were nice and very well done. There was a wedding taking place which was spoiled by a group of drunken homeless people shouting and swearing. It is a shame because this could be a great place

“Pretty gardens but very small”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2013

I had read how stunnig they were, and indeed It is true they are beautiful, theres turtles and fish in the ponds and lovely water fountains.
My only advice is to not go out of your way (like we did on a 35' day!) to go to the Himeji gardens as the walk around only takes 5-10mins. The garden is very small, and whilst beautiful, I'd recommend walking there if you are in the area or intend to go for a walk through the whole Osmond park area.
