“Small ; nothing special”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

The gardens are not huge. They are relatively small and not a place where you will take time out to visit. Some nice tress, and some very large squirrels that are extremely playful. Unless you are a big fan of squirrels, you can skip the gardens.

“a nice place to rest your legs”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

company garden is easy to find and offer some coolness for the nice big trees along the main path through the garden. there is a small rose garden and there is a few squirrels playing in the trees and if you have nuts they will eat from your hand. if you walk all the way to the end of the park you have mount nelson hotel opposite. some times they have this guy standing outside in an old colonial uniform. if you happen to be here on a sunday after noon. why not try the high tea in the restaurant and get the feel of an old world lifestyle

“Historic location”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

Finding Australian eucalyptus trees represented in the gardens added to the historic importance of this area for us. There is lots to see if one explores the edges and various buildings around. Current renovations and restoration of part of the gardens is intended to enhance the historic value - we trust that it will.

“Oasis in the city center”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

Took a couple of pleasant strolls here during our stay in Cape Town. I did not encounter any homeless beggars here. I did on some other walks on some side streets. The gardens are inhabited with lots of squirrels and birds. A lot of renovation was being done at this time.

“Worthwhile Visit if you are in the area”
Reviewed 6 June 2014 via mobile

If you were in the area, a worthwhile attraction to add to your trip. Fairly well maintained and interesting if one takes the history into consideration. Good for a picnic and a walk.
