I’ve often driven past Beverley Park on Avonside Drive. It looks like a grassy park with a some trees in it – much like many of the local parks around Christchurch. So I had never actually stopped to have a look inside the park. But today, as you can see, I finally ventured past the tall trees and discovered the Heritage Rose Garden. I’d been informed about the rose garden by one one of my Facebook followers (thanks Graeme). So I decided it was high time I checked it out.
I think this garden is definitely a very ‘hidden gem’ of Christchurch. Maybe it won’t be quite so hidden now
The local houses around the garden are all quite historic – lots of very cute cottages.
You can find the rose garden off Gilby St in Richmond (off Avonside Drive).
