  • Nice place in the centre of the city. Tranquil and peaceful. For sure it needs more update and improvement, but still the place is worth to visit, amazing trees and long alleys. Autumn is stunning here 😍😍😍
  • This place is so beautiful! It is big enough that you forget you're in the middle of a city, and it is only 200 tenge for students. I've visited many times and leave very relaxed.
  • Awesome place for long walks !!
  • Not very decent except the mini Japanese garden. The rest of the place isn't tidy at all, just as most parks in KZ
  • However this place held international gardening gallery, it's still dirty and dark. But I have to say Botanical Garden of Almaty is huge!
