Easy to find close to Salo. We entered here one sunny afternoon. It is a nice little place good for a little relaxation. Some art is placed inside the plants and the mixture is well done. We liked it and recommend it.

A modest but lovely garden a few minutes walk from the boat station. Very popular with groups and so it can get a bit cluttered.

This beautiful garden is well thought out. It's the perfect combination of beauty and whimsy. The handout is very informative. The plants and sculptures are numbered and easily identified on the map. The modern approach to the art work peppered through out the garden is...More

We really enjoyed this garden. It's a tiny bit expensive for what it is (I think EUR 12) but it's a nice spot and has some very atmospheric elements. It's incredibly photogenic.

Hello, My opinion would be that the gardens are not really accessible for wheelchairs. I cannot remember there being any steps, however very little of the gardens are flat since it is on a hillside. Also some of the paths... More
