  • really nice gardens and grass areas here. It's not too busy so nice for a peaceful walk around.
  • My fault I went in winter so seemed empty lovely pink blossoms and autumn leaves
  • Beautifully maintained garden, a short and scenic walk from the city. The toilets are quite aged but clean.
  • Lovely to take the kids for a breath of fresh air and a run around!
  • 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.
