The Lower Gardens are lovely and peaceful and with lovely flower beds full of colour and unusual plants. Nice to sit on the grass and relax.

We spent a couple of launch times in this beautiful park. Plenty of places to sit in sun or shade. Watching the wildlife was fascinating. A really good place to rest after shopping with either a cup of tea or an ice cream.

Walking along the gardens is a must when visiting Bournemouth! They have been with rain for quite awhile...but everything looked great! Families enjoying the music from the bandstand!

The gardens were very well kept with a lovely little 18 hole crazy golf course. The birds were a lovely attraction and I am looking forward to seeing the new aviary next time I get chance to visit.

Very nicely laid out gardens with something for everyone a bonus in the Bournemouth area. Has something for everybody - old and young. Great atmosphere in the early evening too

Visited with a group of friends, two of whom have mobility issues. On several occasions we had to move swiftly to prevent getting flattened by cyclists or skateboarders. The gardens themselves are nice but our visit was marred by inconsiderate people

This park is so lovely, water runs through with ducks. Lots of grass areas, crazy golf, food carts, seating and flowers. Loved this place and wished we had something like this where we lived in Cornwall.

Always alot going on in the lower gardens, in the summer bands play in the band stand, there's ice cream and food cafes and the gardens themself are lovely and well maintained. In the winter, you can find the ice skating rink and much more.
