These Gardens, located in scenic little Churchtown, have regulalry achieved a Green Flag Award for its excellence as a park and the green space is nationally renowned for its floral displays, it's unique indoor collection of ferns and regular programme of seasonal events. Depending on the time of year you can enjoy an ever changing riot of colour and scent, so it's brilliant for repeat visits too!

The park is open 7 days a week, every day of the year and as well as enjoying the rich swathes of flowers, the tranquil lake and the arboretum, there is a wealth of additional facilities on site to help entertain families. These include an aviary, an adventure playground (with traditional fare like swings and slides), bowls green, a mini golf course and a fun selection of outdoor gym equipment. There are also public loos provided, a nursery shop, a family run cafe and a full on banqueting hall! Plus of course so long as you're tidy you can picnic on the grass too. Dogs are welcome on leads and you must of course be baggied up! The car park is situated off Verulam Road and Balmoral Drive in Churchtown nearby, just a short walk from the gardens.
