The Royal Gardens was a series of public gardens found in the city. After they burned down, the gardens were covered in an enormous pile of dirt. Jacques Snicket proved that the destruction of the gardens was arson.
- According to the Author's notes in the The Bad Beginning: Rare edition, a surviving bench from the Royal Gardens was moved into a hotel lobby, most likely Hotel Denouement because the bench had etched rings. This is usally an indication of a villainous person with bad manners.
- The Rare Edition describes the gardens as containing several ornate wooden benches ideal for sitting and reading. There is also a structure known as the Poisonous Pavilion, which contains exotic plants. One of these plants was removed prior to the Garden's destruction and used in a case that Justice Strauss is investigating during the events of The Bad Beginning.
