Worth the walk to explore this lovely classic garden. Have to return to explore the cafe that borders it in the art gallery.

Love these gardens, they have improved over the years. I love that they are quite compact but really stunning. We particularly loved the Chinese gardens.

Enjoyed walking around these gardens, easy walk and flat pathways. Great spot for a picnic and to feed the ducks

If you are visiting or live in Nelson, I would recommend a stroll through these gardens either before or after enjoying lunch at the Suter Cafe and visiting the Gallery. A quiet and peaceful haven within a city is always welcome.

Sadly to say it doesn't require too much attention to be a council worker as it's the pretentious idiots above them that dictate as what will be.ponds could do with a bit of a clean up and bins emptied more frequently.

The gardens were near our hotel so we spent some time wandering through the gardens which were quiet and peaceful. You do have watch your step as the ducks inevitably leave their calling cards on the paths! Attractive plants and interesting statues. We combined this walk with a visit to the Suter Gallery.

Wandered through here on an autumn morning and nice to see people just reading and having coffee.
Garden is a mix of old english trees, native NZ bush and a few ponds.
Yes it might have looked better at one stage but its kept miles better then the Japanese Garden.
It's so close to town it would be a shame to miss it if you are staying in town.
Nice to have a quiet coffee at Sutter Cafe that is on the border of the garden too

Sad gardens...need a makeover by someone who knows about public gardens.
Neglected would sum it up. Too many trees, borders need a good clean up.
Duck pond a sad shadow of it's former self.
Walking the surrounding streets I became aware of how neglected the old houses and gardens are. The Council need to make an effort to make it a "garden city" again. River walk needs attention also.
I always liked visiting Nelson for it's gardens...not any more.
