Free State National Botanical Garden, Bloemfontein Reviews
Lovely tranquil spaces to relax and recharge your batteries. Obviously quite dry in winter, but still nice. A restaurant with GREAT food is also present.
A good place to take a walk. The trails up the mountain give a superb view of the garden. We really had fun . It's a good place to have a picnic. The place is so quiet and cool. I loved it.
Very nice! The garden is well looked after and it's neat and clean. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who just wants to be in the nature. Perfect for parties and hiking.
The garden is beautiful. We had a photo shoot there and the pictures looked great. It is also great for picnics.
The gardens are very well maintained and the staff are very friendly and the ablutions are clean. There are nice hiking trails and a really nice restaurant with good food and nice service. Packing your own snacks and a blanket is just as nice though. There is enough space for many people to have nice picnics on weekends. There are nice benches and lots of trees also available. The entrance fee is not a problem to pay at all when you can see that it is being utilized effectively. This is an excellent venue for photographers doing photo shoots for people!
