Walk around the waterfall and ponds of the Rainforest Gully, where you can see many of the 450 species of palm trees the Gardens contain. Admire coastal plants and a mangrove near the gardens' beach. A shady playground is also available to entertain children. Make sure you put on sunscreen and insect repellent before your visit.

A nice way to spend a few hours relaxing and walking around the gardens. Easy to find parking and then can choose a short or long walk just wandering around between the different areas. Very well... more »
Beautiful space that is perfectly manicured and wonderful for a picnic. The cafes are great too and you know you'll always score a park. Highly recommend visiting
Staff are fantastic. What we saw of the gardens are not spectacularly manicured, probably due to what the climate will allow to grow, ie mostly jungle type plants. We will explore all of the gardens eventually.
