We took our dogs for an amble in this wonderful garden and the dogs loved it so much they launched themselves into a pond which they couldn't get themselves out of so I had myself a little wade dragging them out of the pond. The conservatory is very beautiful and a wonderful setting for a wedding or wedding photos.

This park has gone through a bit of a rough patch some years ago, but no more! It is a top class city park which is incredibly well run. A great place to go for a quick stroll, a picknic with the family. Dont miss the beautiful glass hothouse filled with exotic plants. We love using the public swimming pool.

Once a month they have a market called 'art in the park'. Like any big public park, so take care to go in a group and not on your own.

Some very beautiful spots for picnics and a walk around the grounds. Also many runners and fitness conscious people around. One of the best nature escapes in the city

The park part of St George's is right next to the famous cricket oval. The park is absolutely stunning with lovely pathways and the most incredible old trees and seating. Very well maintained except for the bathrooms. A public Olympic pool, tennis courts and bowls clubs surround the park amongst others. My favorite though was Pearsons Conservatory - just sat... More

We had time to kill so enjoyed a leisurely stroll around the gardens. The place is very well maintained and even though we visited out of season, the gardens were still really lovely to see. We particularly liked the Pearson conservatory.

The park is really a site to behold. The municipality have also been doing some upgrades which I'm glad to see. I really enjoy using the pool, but I'm disappointed that it opens for such a short period of time. 10h00 to 17h30. I would love to do some laps during the mornings or evenings. :(
