Lovely and enjoyable environment, well kept gardens in the city centre, with a stream with ducklings, mini golf, plenty of space and shades. Very beautiful garden and flowers. Definitely worth a visit.

Bournemouth's gardens are as good as they have been for years. A great hideaway from the hustle and bustle of life
