  • The presence of so many well established sub tropical trees bushes and plants in this beautifully laid out garden is well worth a visit.  more »
  • A drizzly day in mid-December is obviously not the best time to visit any sort of garden, but even so I'd prefer something more visually interesting and without a group of men totally ignoring the...  more »
  • A real treat to find such a beautiful oasis in the middle of Penzance. Make time to take a wander as the gardens are delightful. Well planned, well stocked and someone takes a lot of trouble to keep.....  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
