We have visited the garden yesterday. Beautiful and no tourists. Tram 19 stops in Rondo Mogliskie. From there 300 meters (take the tunnel, then the first left). Entrance is behind the red barrier.

Yes there is a tram stop about 10 minutes walk away - faster if you are a quick walker! The stop we used was called Rondo Mogilskie - its actually located on a large roundabout and is served by several tram lines.
