When we arrived at the gardens a whole bunch of birds, doves and pigeons, came swooping down which was quite unnerving. But once inside the park, it's very peaceful, there's a pretty bridge and waterfall, and lots of nice planting around.

Beautiful gardens especially in Spring overlooking the sea. Water fountain and lovely walking paths and of course flowers.Also step just out of them and go for a walk along the beach on Marine Parade

the paths can be steep, some have lots of steps. The gardens are pretty with several huge majestic Himalayan pines on show. The historic Napier cemetery is at the top of the gardens, also worth a wander around

Having the flowers bloom was an added extra as we celebrated the bestfriend's wedding ceremony here! An old yet tranquil & picturesque garden that complimented the occasion.

It's nice, but very tiny. Not big an of birds in cage... I suppose it's nicer in spring or summer for flowers.

We happened upon the botanical gardens a couple of years after moving to Hawke's Bay. What a hidden treasure this is! Once you find the spot - where parking is on-street and easy - the rest is as much or as little as you choose...More
