“Nice green break from the city ”
Review of Jardin Botanico

Nice gardens a bit out of city Center. Nice break from the city. You can hear lots of birds and walk around the aerobic circle.
Not big but feels nice to roam around.

This is one of Montevideo´s wonderfully treed parks. Signs on many trees are explanatory, and there are some beautiful fountains with lily pads and sculptures. The cool breeze was most welcome. Not too big to walk all the way around.

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.
