Lower Gardens, Bournemouth

4.6
Sought out for its cultivated beauty since the Victorian era, Lower Gardens gave birth to a whole town. The gardens are split into three areas: The Lower Gardens play host to concerts and events, the Central Gardens are in the center of town, and the Upper Gardens retain much of their Victorian character. Visit the Alum Chine for award-winning tropical gardens near the sea, and the Pinewalk for the soothing smell of pine trees. You'll also find a rock garden, innumerable flower varieties, and leisurely sporting. For golf, visit Meyrick Park, where you'll also find outdoor bowling.

  • A really nice park complete with all the usual seaside attractions including refreshment kiosks, a bandstand, crazy golf, aviary, craft Market (summer only) loads on benches and grazed areas and toilets. Within easy reach of the seafront, pier, town centre shops and restaurants, buses etc. The river running through the centre of the gardens is a perfect place to relax.
  • Fantastic place, beautiful place so much going on, there is a bird cage full of some stunning birds, also there is table tennis just along from the bird cage. There are lots of little tea/coffee stops all around the gardens. Well worth a visit.
