Nice place to pop into if you are passing, but not worth going out of your way to visit. It is more of a park than gardens. It could do with an organisation like the National Trust or the RHA taking over to put money and manpower into it. And the toilets are dire, three very old portaloos.
Finally visited the gardens last week, the grounds are beautiful and an asset to the Merseyside waterfront. However, some of the main attractions look like they could do with a bit of a revamp, ponds half full and water fountains run dry . Would be amazing with a little attention given to update it.
nice place to chill and relax its quite surprising how nice its kept I think this place is under rated in my view more people should visit
Randomly found this while walking down the prom and it was a lovely surprise as Otterspools prom isn't much to look at, I loved the little walk ways and different water areas the Chinese and Japanese gardens and sculptures were very nice and there was wildlife dotted around the water areas I have read a few reviews stating its not... 更多
The gardens have seen better days for instance in the Japanese gardens the water level is very low so not as full as it should be which would surely attract more birds and animals around plus the waterfall no longer works Hopefully with more money put into it then more can be done but saying that don't let that put... 更多
An enjoyable place to travel to by train.Get off at St Michaels station and walk just as you could when the festival was there.A bit jaded in places but being restored by a voluntary group of active people. Has great potential and is a lovely space to sit, walk ,talk and explore in a fairly localised area. You can wander... 更多
Took my father as he is keen on walking and gardens, this is not a garden. It is a space with plenty of paths some lawns and a woodland walk with what should be a Japanese and Chinese garden. We'd heard it had been restored, but it still looks very wild and overgrown, with only wild flowers and no water... 更多

I've lived in Liverpool for 3 years and cycle past the gardens most days. The only thing stopping me visiting the gardens was my partner telling me they'd been closed down. Much to my (and the dog's) pleasure we decided to check them out earlier after a walk in the prom and were pleasantly surprised by how beautiful, diverse and... 更多
I visited here when i was a child and it was the original garden festival. The original site was very big from what i remember and absolutely packed with visitors. It now seems a shadow of its former glory.I realise it had been derelict for quite a long time and volunteers are doing a great job in restoring the site.... 更多
