The Botanical Gardens at Royal Victoria Park

About

One of the most delightful features of Royal Victoria Park, The Botanical Gardens were formed in 1887, and within their nine acres are many choice trees, shrubs, a fine herbaceous border, a rock garden and pool, a scented walk, a collection of old shrub roses, and a replica of a Roman Temple.

You will find the walkways, which wind in and out of the planted areas, full of interest and colour, and alive with birds, insects, butterflies and wildlife.

A small stream bubbles over stones and under small bridges, and there is a large, fish filled pond with a moorhen house. There are many benches dotted around for you to sit and enjoy a little peace and quiet, away from the bustle of the city centre. 

To mark its centenary in 1987, the gardens were extended to include the Great Dell, a disused quarry and formerly part of the park itself, which already contained a very fine collection of conifers. It has since been developed into a beautiful woodland garden with an aerial walkway, which provides a series of breathtaking viewpoints amongst the trees and right across Royal Victoria Park.
