Botanic Gardens was established in 1828 by the Belfast Botanic and Horticultural Society in response to public interest in horticulture and botany. The rose garden and herbaceous borders were established in 1920. Construction of the Palm House began in 1839, and the Tropical Ravine, or Fernery, completed in 1889, is a fine example of horticultural Victoriana. The plants grow in a sunken glen overlooked by a balcony. Wheelchair access. Free access always to gardens. Closes for lunch.
Park features include the Palm House, Tropical Ravine, an alpine garden, bowling green and pavilion, children’s playground, giant bird feeders, flower beds, rockery, rose garden, shrub borders, specimen trees and sculptures.
