What a lovely spot traffic and high rise flats on one side the coast on the other. In the middle this peaceful oasis with lovely plants and water features. Dont miss it .

We just had a quick walk around. It is just a japanese garden. Maybe it was something extraordinary at the time it was built. Now it is quite common. It could be managed better considering Montecarlo's level.

Unexpected pleasure is what you will find in these beautifully constructed gardens. In the hustle and bustle of Monaco this is an oasis of quite peace.

I live in Monaco and this is one of my favourite things to do. A stroll through the Japanese Gardens, sitting in one of the gazebos and watching the fish or the tourists :) It is a beautiful place and if you can go there in the Spring it is even better. The cherry blossoms are lovely.

Great relaxing walk thru manicured gardens, coy fish and a view of the Mediterranean. A pause in the busy day of riding all over the principality.

Very pretty, peaceful place on the way to the Grimaldi Forum. Beautiful pond with Koi fish. Quite a small park. Would not make a special trip to see it but nice as it was on our route during our conference.

A gentle stroll and a quiet few moments sitting in these lovely gardens is a must. Lovely large Koi in the lake and lovely shaped trees

In my opinion this is not worth a visit ,it is half way up a mountain and lots and lots so steps ,and when you arrive there is not much to see at all ,the views are nice ,but that's basically all to see ,and not cheap to gain entry,cost a few pounds ,save your money

Absolutely beautiful. Have been to Monte Carlo before and missed these. Spent a long time walking round the peaceful gardens and the stepping stones. Don't miss if you are in Monte Carlo
