Gibraltar Botanic Gardens (The Alameda), Gibraltar

4.3
#4 of 10 in Parks in Gibraltar
Created as a recreational area for off-duty British soldiers, Gibraltar Botanic Gardens (The Alameda) welcomes tourists and locals wishing to escape the heat or simply take a leisurely stroll. British Governor George Don commissioned a walking path around the main square in 1815, which was later expanded into a network of paths and terraced beds. In the first half of the 1990s, the neglected gardens underwent renovation, at which point a zoo was added to the site. Apart from the four howitzer cannons guarding the bronze bust of General Eliot, the gardens boast an open-air theater that can also serve as a wedding venue.

  • We visited the gardens whilst on a cruise ship stop. We are not big fans of Gibraltar, so to find this hidden gem was brilliant. Very quiet away from all the crowds. Very well kept gardens, highly recommended. A fair walk from the cruise terminal though.
  • Really enjoyed the atmosphere there. Easy to get to, and has got lots of different species of greens to immerse ourselves into. It has also got wildlife reserve and a few other facilities. Good for a casual stroll.
