King Edward Park

All year round

You’ll feel like a new person after experiencing the lush greenery, native bush, soothing bird sounds, and running river on your visit to King Edward Park.

Planned for promenading, the park was also intended to be a source of inspiration for local gardeners, exhibiting collections of plants suitable for growing in the town and surrounding district. Remnants of the collection theme can be seen in the 15 varieties of hedge plant used across the park, the spring displays of daffodils and the heritage and modern rose gardens. Magnolias, azalea and rhododendron collections, rose gardens and annual borders. King Edward Park is truly a garden for all seasons.
