Free State National Botanical Garden Reviews & Ratings

  • Very quiet and clean. Also very luscious green grass that makes it very nice for a picnic or just to go read there while surrounded by nature. Would definitely go back again. However,their tourist shop needs a bit of attention and doesn't really have much variety.

  • A well manicured, scenic and spacious garden. It's peaceful and there are many private spots of you're looking for some privacy or just some alone time with beautiful views. I love it.

  • The gardens look amazing. There are boards available everywhere with additional information on trees and plants. There is also a fabulous trail that goes up alongside the hill, with beautiful views of the area. More than enough space to picnic. It's a shame that the jungle gym has been removed.

  • The gardens are beautiful and the grass is green. I like the coffee that the restuarant makes. The hiking trail is nice, and it feels like you're going on an adventure when you take it. I would really recommend anyone to go there. But, i took my girlfriend to the gardens today, on a picnic, and one of the men working there took pictures of us. It was weird.

  • Wonderful green lawns lovely trees and shrubs and so peacefull !! The restaurant serves excellent food and the buffet was out of the books . A place to recommend .
