Isn’t it a pleasure when you come across a previously unknown public garden around the city. At the end of last summer I visited the lovely rose garden just off Beverley Park in Richmond. At this peak time for roses I must revisit it. Another “hidden” garden I enjoy is Millbrook Reserve beside the Avon just off Rossall Street. Some of these places are well known but others are known only to locals or intrepid explorers of the city.
We mention some gardens to visit on our website but the little parks don’t feature. The Christchurch City Council has a no doubt comprehensive but rather soulless Parks A to Z. So help me out here folks – share one of your local treasures.
