    Well manicured. This also reminds me of how much more we could be doing with our botanical gardens as the Nature Isle. Min. of Forestry, let’s get on it. We have talented florists and horticultualists I’m sure

      @ Ms. Kubuli, get a life and stop being an armchair critic! What contribution have YOU made towards the development of the Botanic Gardens? The dedicated staff of the Forestry & Parks Division should be commended for ensuring the survival of our iconic Botanic Gardens despite the many challenges i.e. lack of resources, traffic congestion, littering, stray dogs,unauthorized playing of football,vandalism, “Creole in the Park” etc.

        I have contributed. Have you? I commend them for the upkeep of the Gardens. I’m just saying the Gardens could use a little less grass and a little more flowers and creativity. But I hear you, $$(budget) is always a problem. Right now they blocked of the little parking area by CHS gate. Where do we park to enjoy all the grass?
