Botanic gardens is a beautifully situated garden very close to the centre of Belfast. It is very well kept and always looks wonderfull as every day when I walk past it on the way to and from work it appears pristeen and is always very relaxing to walk through after a bad day at work. Botanic gardens is for everyone - when I was a young child my father used to take me through it on the way to church and the fresh air and beautiful surroundings really made me fall in love with Belfast - even if it was surrounded by terrorists. Even now, after many years people will come and even spend their whole day at the gardens - lying on the grass, sunbathing, reading, socialising, going for a walk, pigging out on ice cream on the warm summery days and much more. While you're there you could also visit the wonderful museum in the gardens or the tropical house - there really is something for everyone! So if you are ever in Belfast be sure to visit the gardens!
Say the words "Botanic Gardens" to any student from Queen's University Belfast, and without a doubt, you will hear some story about it, whether it be how they climbed the gates late at night as a short cut to get home from the pub, or if they are recalling the many lazy summer days, skipping class to either sunbathe, or kick the football around with their mates. Botanic Garden's in Belfast is a beautiful location - Situated beside the magnificent old lanyon building of Queen's University. Within Botanic Gardens there is also the Ulster Museum, good for kids, tourists, or those just interested in what it contains! The actual botanical part of the gardens is wonderful, they are very well kept, and visitors may enter into the extensive greenhouse that can be found there. Botanic Gardens has played host to some big events, such as an outdoor Van Morisson concert and the annual food fair. During the summer months, you will most likely find the Gardens teaming with students, and young people, all having a good time. It's a great place to visit.
