  • Southsea Rock Garden is a beautiful park by the seafront. The array of plants is fantastic and the garden is maintained well. There are many benches if you want to have a sit down and admire the beautiful scenery around you. There is a waterfall and a mini pond there, which is relaxing and tranquil, however the waterfall isn't running every single day, meaning it must be pumped instead of being natural. It is a lovely place to take photos and if you are going to Southsea Seafront, I recommend coming here as well!
  • Absolutely delightful. A real find. So easy to miss. Well laid out. Lots of good seating. Water feature. An oasis.
  • Just take five mins to walk around this garden. Yep no apps required no wifi. It's a garden. sit by the water fall and just listen. . . . Nice
  • Good place to wander about or just sit. It is in a dip so out of the wind. Thete are pools with fish in.
  • Beautiful spot to stop and enjoy on the walk down the promenade.
