What people are saying:

The Botanical Gardens came to existence in 1884. Previously it was an old granite quarry. The Gardens were known as "The waterfall Gardens", because at the end of the Botanic Gardens is a 122-metre high cascade waterfall with its water flowing through the Gardens. Early in the morning you can see people crowd here to jog, exercise and breath the clean and fresh air.

    Not for visitors without a guide

    Well loved and frequented by the locals. Young and old come here to jog, walk, exercise and lots of elderly meet here regularly for their exercise and daily dose of catch up with one another. As for f...

    I took my kids for an early evening run around the gardens. The larger loop is 1.9km and the smaller is 0.9km, both of which have significant ascents and descents. Nice place to run. There is a Lin...
