Events information

The Gardens provide a tranquil, lush setting for many kinds of outdoor events. In the past the Friends and other groups have hosted sculpture exhibitions and competitions, garden rambles throughout the district, guided tours and teddy bears’ picnics, and look forward to many more events. The Gardens are not only a great venue for simple pleasures like picnics, play, exercise, meditation or just a walk, they are also perfect in fact, for birthdays, weddings, end of year functions and concerts - almost any celebration or gathering.
