A free attraction that is easy to access by car or foot from Adelaide business district. Well laid out traditional Japanese garden. Not large but a great example of typical features. Plenty of free parking nearby.

A really relaxing place to be. Despite being with a 6 y.o. kid. I thought the gardens were great, a good way to destress and just enjoy the space around you. Very beautiful and a great initiative.

No, it is a quiet, “hidden secret” sort of place, I have never seen a lot of people there, but it is a lovely escape from the bustling city

No food or drink available here. The garden is small and serene, perfect for relaxation and contemplation.

Fair bit of parking just on the street. It is at one end of South Terrace and near a hospital so it is a bit hit and miss. I don't think there is any cost involved in parking there.
