Very Colourful

Nicely set out and well cared for.
If you are keen on flowers then it is good to visit.
Good cafe nearby and a lake in the adjacent park.

Best New Year Treat
Jan 2021
Having been in Auckland on holiday some months back we were locked out of the gardens, what with Covid Level 2.5. Early in December we were on a short break to visit the capital city and made time to see the Wellington Gardens which were lovely. Now we found ourselves travelling through Whanganui in the Christmas-New Year period. We made a stop at Lake Virginia and imagine our surprise to discover this Winter Garden treasure there! I walked around and around marveling at the beautifully presented displays of creativity, colour and form. The gardeners are to be congratulated for their fine efforts and I certainly look forward another visit and maybe more surprises. A great attraction for all ages.

Beautiful collection of indoor plants
Oct 2020 • Family
If you visit Virginia lake, you can simply visit this beautiful garden which is located next to the lake. It is a beautiful collection of indoor plants and flowers. This is a very small garden and you need no more than 30 minutes to visit the whole garden properly. If you want to take some fantastic photos, here is a good place to visit. Thanks

Just okay
Jun 2020
It was okay, not much plant variety, not made for disabled, there were steps everywhere. You could not visit if you were in wheel chair or even on walker or stick would be difficult. Maybe nice in summer. Cafe next door was closed.

Small but worth a Visit
Apr 2020
A nice place to wonder in from the main garden. You would not want to go through here if there was a bus group or too many people.

Peaceful stroll through ferns and outdoor art sculptures
Mar 2020
Beautiful Art Deco conservatory built in 1940 standing alongside Virginia Lake.
Free admission, there are steps unfortunately no wheelchair access.
Very colourful with ferns, water features and tunnels.
Disappointed to see Christmas decorations still hanging.Looked tacky not to mention out of season.
Outdoors was really relaxing with sculptures and an art garden.
