Lower Gardens, Bournemouth

4.8
Sought out for its cultivated beauty since the Victorian era, Lower Gardens gave birth to a whole town. The gardens are split into three areas: The Lower Gardens play host to concerts and events, the Central Gardens are in the center of town, and the Upper Gardens retain much of their Victorian character. Visit the Alum Chine for award-winning tropical gardens near the sea, and the Pinewalk for the soothing smell of pine trees. You'll also find a rock garden, innumerable flower varieties, and leisurely sporting. For golf, visit Meyrick Park, where you'll also find outdoor bowling.

  • Nice open green area to escape from a busy city centre. It's broken down into sections and is near toilets teas and ice creams. Also has a beautiful band stand which regularly has music in the summer months. A nice place to simply chill out with a good book and Basque in the sun.
  • Council seem to be doing an excellent job here really put some effort in lots of going on just need to get rid of that horrid bird aviary always hated it apart from that really nice place to go more and more pop up places definitely worth checking out was great to go there today and get away from the crowds down on the beach and some really good tunes as you will see from these videos
