With exquisite flora, tranquil ambience and extraordinary beauty, these magnificent botanical gardens are the living, breathing heart of the cities they serve.
Jardim Botanical Garden, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
In Rio, 140 hectares, Jardim Botanical Garden is home to more than 6,500 plant species. Founded by King John VI of Portugal in 1808, it was initially intended to spice up nutmeg, pepper. And cinnamon before importing it to Europe from the West Indies. It was opened to the public in 1822. And it continues to be one of the most important botanical research centres in Brazil. These gardens are famous among bird watchers. And the rare white-throated hawks are often spotted here rather than in the forest. Garden can be found in the South Zone of the country.
The district got its name as it grew around the city’s botanical gardens. Residents are generally upper-middle-class. And do not live near the favela, which is rare in the city. It is different from most neighbourhoods in Rio because of the large number of homes. Also, It is not common in the re-populated southern region. It is home to many Brazilian celebrities. And the Red Globo, the headquarters of the television network nationwide. Most of Red Globo’s studios are located in the neighbourhood.
Royal Botanic Gardens, Sydney, Australia.
The Royal Botanical Garden is a heritage-listed botanical garden. Situated on the edge of Sydney’s Upper Central Business District, the Royal Botanic Gardens is a prominent part of Sydney Harbor.

The official name of the park is the Royal Botanic Gardens and Domain; Tarpeian Way; Botanical Gardens.
The park is the oldest scientific institution in Australia. The park has been home to many fruit bats and is estimated to be over 20,000 active from time to time, and in 2013 they became controversial, playing loud music. Ironically, the bats moved to the native Bushland, north of the city. To make way for a road is reserved for destruction. Construction of the road for environmental assessment of the welfare of bats has been delayed. So would you like to let you know about another garden also???

Denver Botanic Gardens, Colorado, USA.
Also, the 5th place I’m going to tell you is from America.
Denver Botanical Garden boasts not only the largest collection of plants in North America’s cold temperate climate but also a sunken amphitheatre that hosts concerts in the summer. So after checking out the alpine wildflower garden, you can go out with Melissa Etheridge, or get your ring with Chaka Khan. The 23-acre gardens are located in the old Prospect Hill Cemetery. Most of the bodies were removed in 1893, some of the wildlife, notorious pirates from the Wild West, including four graves discovered during the restoration of the garden’s irrigation and sprinkler systems since 2010. The garden was created in 1951.
Denver Botanic Gardens is home to the largest collection of flora and fauna in Colorado and neighbouring states.

It is based on Xeriscape’s “7 Principles” and includes drought-tolerant plants from the arid West and Mediterranean. Denver Botanical Garden is the first conservatory in the United States, made entirely of concrete and plexiglass windows. In 1973, the Boettcher Memorial Tropical Conservatory had a special place.

The Singapore Botanic Garden has been sitting on the busy Orchid Road for over 158 years and is the only tropical garden listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This is a mecca for orchid lovers. More than 20,000 examples of this delicate flower are found around the ground.

The linear distance between the northern and southern extremities is about 2.5 km (1.6 mi). Although the park has a number of entrances, the Tanglin Gate facing the Dutch Road to the south is the Great Gateway.

I hope to present details to you about another two gardens now.

Nongnooch Tropical Botanical Garden, Thailand.
Nongnooch Botanic Garden, set in the 500-acre Roll Mountains and Valleys behind Pattaya, is a concept of Ms.Nongnuch and has been inspired by the beauty of world-renowned gardens to transform her orchard into a tropical garden of ornamental flowers and herbs. Opened to the public in 1980, it quickly became one of the region’s most popular attractions. The gardens are a blend of Thai architecture and European style gardens. There is a French garden and a European garden as well as tropical treats such as a flower valley, an orchid garden, and an anthill. The dinosaur valley contains life-size replicas of the ovaries, styrocosaurs, and sirolophosaurus, and is a recent addition to the park’s attractions. There is a division of gardens in the main garden. French Garden, European Garden, Stonehenge Garden, Ant Tower, and Butterfly Hill are some of the parts of the division.
In addition to exploring wildlife, tourists experience religious festivals, martial arts demonstrations, massages, and elephant shows. In 2019, a controversy over the botanical garden came to light when a traveller uploaded a picture suggesting mistreating elephants.
There are also two restaurants, a small zoo and a hotel with a swimming pool and Thai style rentals on the grounds.
