This garden was surprise to find next to the beach. Paths meander around lush borders filled with interesting and community planting. Spotlessly clean.

We just intended visiting Gyllyngvase beach and the cafe there, but after parking we discovered this lovely little park. The gardens are really quite lovely and we enjoyed our stroll through it before heading back beside the beach.

Delightful gardens at the end of an invigorating walk from our accommodation along the beachside and across into the gardens. Prettily laid out gardens, well maintained, a joy to see.

Falmouth has lots of lovely public gardens - all beautifully maintained. This one offers a quiet place to relax by the popular Gyllyngvase Beach and at the end of the coastal walk from Swanpool Beach.

Although not very large this is a very nice place to sit if you want relief from the beach. Lots of unusual plants. All nicely done and well maintained. Toilets nearby.
