The gardens are kept lovely and even has bushes etc shaped like a train. The land train also comes through these gardens. Worth a visit, like most things in the Area near to Boscombe shopping precinct.

Visited the gardens onm the land bus from Bournemouth, even in October they are really colourful, the trees getting their autumnal colours. A place to relax.

Really lovely gardens to stroll through - lots of people having a lovely time, sitting on the seats or playing on the grass. No noisy, bad behaved children in evidence. Yippee.

Nice gardens which make a great walk down to the beach. Has a children's play area for family's. Not a huge area but very pleasant.

Nice gardens and well worth a walk through. The attractions were closed due to it being out of season but still worth seeing.

Lovely walk through the Chine to the beach with dogs. Lovely sandy beach with a Harvester Restaurant that overlooked the sea with breathtaking views and allows dogs in the bar area. a huge bonus!

It’s got crazy golf, a basketball court, wet play area for kiddies, small cafe and lots of flowers. It links Christchurch Road to Boscombe pier forming a pleasant walk. There is a separate cycle walk but most cyclists use the main route 😡😡😡

Would recommend on side streets, towards the Boscombe town end of the gardens. No actual parking on gardens site, but toilet facilities at both ends. No fprmal picnic area but plenty of seats along the main walk - beware... More
