The gardens are beautiful and very well manicured with tons of interesting plants. We only had an hour to walk through here so we could only see the highlights, but my wife couldn't stop taking photos of the hundreds of vibrant flowers!

We visited in mid January and the rose garden and borders were in full bloom. The hot house is worth a visit and the visitor cafe excellent with good food and drinks. Top tip don’t eat outside as they have. A seagull dive bombing problem!!

You can get to the car park off Armagh St near the start of Park Tce and the end of Rolleston Avenue. You can drive through the park passed the tennis courts on the right and on to the car park on the left under the trees near the children's playground which is on the other side of the pedestrian bridge over the Avon River. It is quite a big car park and during the week it is usually easy to find a car park sometimes on a nice sunny weekend the carpark fills up. If there are festivals it becomes impossible to get a park.
