“interesting!”

The jardim botanico might be a bit less interesting than the private botanical garden that is nearer to Monte, but in the en this is the real botanical garden. It is less fancy and more to the ground and you might miss some of the fancy stuff but then again it is great to see the collection of plants and their arrangements. It is really worth a visit.

Nice place to go with kids, take pictures and have a mate. Nothing special there. Restrooms are awfully ugly but clean. Almost impossible to get a taxi there. Easy to go by bus.

Spent the whole day here, picknicking and chilling with a blunt or two. There are some areas that are secluded and nice, and the locals also use this "botanical" garden for relaxation and fun times.

The garden is more exotic than the average garden, but as a botanical garden for nature freaks; it's not very awesome.

Still, considering it's easily accessable by bus, and that it's free, I would recomend this park.

Overgrown. Poor signage. Bathroom out of order. Weeds. Yep, there are some interesting trees. It is much more like a poorly maintained park than any kind of real botanical garden.

Unkept gardens, weeds and grass everywhere, dying herb and edible garden filled with weeds. So, so very sad! No flowers, nothing exotic... basically a poor maintained park!
BTW, museum in the premises is closed for maintenance and the green house is covered with tarp and falling apart...
The good thing: it's free, otherwise I would had been very mad about going all the way there and still had to pay to see a garden less interesting than my back yard!
