Lowveld National Botanical Garden was established in 1969 after the Nelspruit Municipality decided to embark on a journey to promote the area’s tourism, education and conservation.
The Garden was officially opened by the Administrator of the Transvaal on 10 September 1971. A portion of the 165 ha it occupies was donated by the local municipality and the rest by the Board of HL Hall & Sons.
Of the 165 ha, only 30 ha is cultivated or landscaped, while the remainder is natural or low maintenance areas.
