  • If you are into plants this is the place for you,i popped in on my way to Ulster Museum for a quick look seemed really nice and worth a visit. 
  • I recently went here with my girlfriend and I have to say it was a gorgeous way to spend the day. We went into the palm house which was particularly interesting. Definitely a must see. 
  • This is actually my favourite garden in Belfast. The Rose garden is spectacular and the glass house just gets better and better. Can't wait until the ravin is open after the refurbishment. Lovely wee ...  more »

  • Public place having free access. Those who love Roses this is the place to visit, as you can see so many varieties of them. Lots of places to sit back and relax and to have your own food. Large spectrum of plants from cactus to Asian and other verities. Nice place to visit and spend around one hour.
  • Really pretty. relaxing and spacious green area in Belfast. Definitely worth a visit if not to admire the scenery then just to relax. Lots to see and do for kids as well as adults.
  • Great place to walk the dog and the botanical plants are beautiful. Ulster museum next door so makes for a complete day out.
  • Beautiful park - even on a gray day. It's a great place to sit and read a book. Be sure to visit the conservatory.
  • Very clean and well looked after. Come here for fun on the grass or relaxing by the flowers.
