It was a joy to reacquaint ourselves with the Queenstown Public Gardens when we were there on 27 October 2018. This long wide path is wonderful to walk along. Nigel was the landscape designer on the Queenstown Gardens upgrade a few years ago and the paths and their alignment were the main focus of this upgrade. Previously the “path” was an asphalt road with concrete kerbs and set below the lawn level. The new limechip path is flush with the lawn and edged with basalt. Now when you walk on the path, you feel more intimately involved with the garden.

Spring foliage and rhododendrons in bloom. The main path needs to be wide to accommodate the large groups of tourists that visit the gardens.
