  • I walked around these gardens before picking up a half day outing. They are beautifully kept with some interesting things to see & it's FREE! Well worth an hour of your time!

  • Stumbled across the gardens when going for a stroll about. Third time I’ve been to Queenstown, and was first time at gardens. It was a really lovely walk around the lake. The playground was fun for kids. People enjoying the frisbee golf course. Can definitely recommend for the views, atmosphere and a lovely walk in general. I would return.
  • Beautiful garden. Childrens playground at the start of the park and a nice lakeside stroll from the Queenstown end to the the opposite direction. Along the way, you will come to an exposed outcrop which provides an excellent view of the mountains. It gets windy at this juncture. On the return leg, you can walk on the inner side which gives a very different experience with beautiful pine trees, a rose garden and well kept grounds. A short but enjoyable experience and can be a good place to picnic as well.
