  • A piece of paradise on earth. Go there in the morning to listen to birds singing and enjoy sights of colorful flora!
  • Spent quite alot of time here growing up. Was a beautiful place for all to go to. Its beauty now lives on only in my memories.
  • I did expect more flowers and blooms although all the green lush trees were very beautiful. My expectations were too high I guess. My imagination filled in the gaps
  • A Botanical garden in the heart of Suva City close to the only Museum of Fiji.
  • Good for a walk in the park also close by is Ginger kitchen located in the foyer of the Fiji museum a few minutes walk from holiday Inn and grand pacific hotel.
