As locals, we visit often, usually for a rest and a snack; the gardens are well-maintained all year round. It's during the Tulip Festival, though, that the gardens take a life of their own: Beautiful displays of flowers, many stalls with local produce and a...More

As it's winter, there isn't many flowers and the water in the fountain/pond is drained. I would suggest for people to visit in the warmer months when i'm sure it would be a delightful time to visit.More

Thank you for your comments. Yes, winter is not the premium season to visit Corbett Gardens as the beds look bear. But all the beds have been planted with Tulip bulbs, which will all be blooming during our Tulip Time Festival, starting 12 September until...More

Note your comments. Corbett Gardens garden beds are currently being prepared for the planting of 100,000 tulip bulbs. Please come back during Tulip Time to see the transformation. Tulip Time will run from 12 to 24 September.

This is a must visit garden especially during the Tulip Festival. The gardens are a real showpiece and are a true credit to the dedicated gardeners.

We popped in but nothing much to see. A small, neat park. I think it must be good at other times of the year. Would be nice for a picnic if you got something from one of the many bakeries down the road, or a...More

Late winter, early spring Corbett is at its best. It's always beautifully maintained and when the tulips and spring flowers are out it's quite magnificent to stroll through. Level and small - it's a lovely gardenMore
