Nice and rather large garden

It depends when you are in George. I am sure if one goes there in spring, it must be fabulous. In the height of summer, not a lot of blooming. But it is a nice, quiet walk. Afterwards in the cafeteria a phantastic avo sandwich and a pretty good coffee for no money. Nice!

The last couple of years the management of the Garden really invested a lot in the upgrades of it. Staff also very friendly.

Peaceful botanical gardens...

Peaceful, with lots of birds. A place to enjoy nature and peace in safety. Opportunity to take photos all over the area.

Beautiful gardens
Dec 2019 • Solo
The location is quite central and there are many good venue to stay at in close proximity.

There is a entrance fee of R15

The set up is beautiful but it looks like it needs abit more care and maintenance.

Lovely variety of plant life

Very relaxed and serene environment

Ample parking available

A total letdown
Dec 2019 • Friends
What a disappointment! The garden is currently far from its former glory - overgrown shrubs, very dry (probably due to water restrictions) and full-grown Scotch Thistles (a declared weed in SA) near the ‘trees of peace’.
So sad to see the garden so mismanaged

The Garden Route Botanical Gardens are a beautiful sanctuary in the middle of George. There are breathtaking views of the mountains and a lovely place to run with one's dogs and explore nature in a safe environment. Highly recommended!

Beautiful serene gardens with lots of interesting hidden areas to explore and relax. Become a member and visit as often as you like and you will also be contributing to the betterment of the gardens.

Family visit

It was a cool drizzly day and we decided to visit the botanical gardens. Entrance was a mere R15 per person. The facility is well kept and neat. You will find a variety of indigenous plants and trees. You can follow the different trials and experience the wild side of the gardens. We also enjoyed the medicinal spiral and aloe garden. The fact that dogs are welcome is heart warming. A visit to the George Dam is also a good idea. It is however a pity that the tea garden closed down. Will visit again and again and again.

Mixed Feelings
Jun 2019 • Family
I love the fact that there is a Park in the Garden Route where I can take my dog to, so that he can run around to his hearts content. Unfortunately the facilities at the Park is not well maintained and the staff at the gate are either not well trained regarding the hiking trails or just not very helpful. Such a great place for a family outing and I hope to see some upgrades soon.
