Not as good as we thought it may be, but good also the same..... Plenty of differing plants which were different to see, so rather interesting as we walked through......squirrels were noticed as well.... more »
Beautiful, tranquil gardens. Pleasant surprise to see so many plants still flowering in mid October, and away from all the hustle and bustle of Penzance sea front. Peaceful oasis. more »
Well worth a visit if you're down in Penzance for the day. The exotic plants don't feel as though they belong in England, let alone Cornwall so it's really beautiful to see. The park is always clean and well maintained, and all of the local dog walkers passing through are friendly.
Peaceful gardens, tucked away from the hustle and bustle. Newly discovered today, beautiful plants and shrubs, I'll definitely make a point of visiting again
Gorgeous space with loads of benches and other places to relax. Very well kept with not just tropical plants but also animals such as squirrels and hedgehogs. It's very quiet and peaceful; a perfect place to relax, draw, read or stroll about in.
A hidden and stunning gem in all seasons: in spring, the wonderful collection of Rhododendron, Camellias and Magnolias are in full bloom - lookout for the rare lime Magnolia. In the summer, the lush green vegetation and large palm fronds offer the perfect shade for the bandstand performances. Winter comes late to Penzance and the garden maintains its deep greens - always a tonic and respite from winter.
Shane it's shut when it gets late. Wonderful Victorian sub-tropical gardens with plenty of nooks and crannies to go with the space, good for dogs too
