  • I really love it here. A walk away from the bustle. A place to chill and relax. There is a real history to the gardens and I love the way they have laid out the paths to walk about on. It's a really lovely place to go in Geelong. Also there is a little cafe here and it's also nice.
  • Quirky. Easy to get around .Compact. Different themed gardens. Relaxing Cafe.
  • A great quite location close to the city. It has great views of the bay. Lots of open spaces and a variety of parking places. If you meet others here then you will need to be clear where in the gardens you will meet.
  • Great place for a walk, to take the kids to play on the grass, and in the playground. Didn't see much in the way of exotic botanical.
  • Nice gardens, plenty to see. Good park for kids to play on.
