Bournemouth Lower, Central And Upper Gardens - Review

Has been Green Flag winners since 1999, these award winning gardens are one of the great places to visit in Bournemouth. It is a place where you can sit and relax to enjoy the pleasant weather of Bournemouth or take a stroll among the beautiful features of the nature. Stretching from the Pier Approach to the borough boundary with Poole at Branksome Wood Road, this beautiful 3 kilometer long garden is further divided into three sections, named upper garden, central garden and lower garden.

  • The Lower Gardens: It covers quite a short area of the entire garden space, running from the pier to the town center. Open all the year around, the primary attractions of this section are a bandstand, a mini golf, refreshment kiosks, art exhibition, an aviary and the Bournemouth Balloon ride which takes you around 500 feet above the ground, offering panoramic views of the entire area. Other than this, seasonal events like Summer Kids Free Festival and 100 year old Traditional Candlelight Illuminations also take place.
  • The Central Gardens: If you are looking for a quieter place, you can move on in this region. This part of the garden is quite popular among cyclers because of the beautiful cycling trail that runs through the Bourne Valley Greenway to Branksome. The beautiful features of this garden are the pergola standing over the bridge forming a beautiful spot to take a few clicks and the tennis courts. For refreshment, a café is available.
  • The Upper Gardens: It was laid out as a private garden for the Durant family in the year 1860. Filled with different kind of trees and plants, the garden offers a natural feel when you wander around the place. Take a tour and you will come across numerous little red bridges crossing over the stream. Follow that path and it will take you to finely decor small rock gardens and Coy Pond. Beyond this zone, the road is slightly bumpy. Hence, you need to be really careful about it.

Thus, this region is one of the great places for a weekend getaway.

Bournemouth Lower, Central And Upper Gardens, Bournemouth Reviews

Google+
  • Nice but nothing extraordinary. Birds aviatory definitely needs some financial support. Generally I guess everything looks better during summertime not a winter when I was visiting

  • Very beautiful gardens with an Avery with all sorts of parrots an buggies and other birds. In the winter you have the Christmas market complete with outdoor ice rink. A nice place to chill out with ample benches and places to buy cold drinks and ice cream. It's also very near both the beach and the main shopping street. Sadly however there are A lot if homeless people begging so be aware of your personal items.

  • Lovely parks where you can either have a picnic in the park, get an ice cream or play a round of crazy golf. Ideally located close to a few carparks, the shopping centre, restaurants and the beach. There are also free public toilets that you can use in the park

  • The gardens are beautiful and on a nice sunny day this a great place to come relax, read a book, take a nap. Whatever tickles your fancy. :)

  • A nice bit of green space in the centre of Bournemouth with a stream running through the middle and Aviary full of wild birds a balloon to see the town from above and sometimes they have entertainment or music on in the park
