Garden of Remembrance

garden of remembrance

The Garden of Remembrance is situated in an idyllic location out of the rush of everyday life. You can enjoy the tranquil atmosphere giving you the time and space to reflect and remember loved ones. The garden has grown in many ways since its opening in 1995 with its striking pergola and traditional designed raised flower beds reminiscent of the grand garden designs of stately homes from times gone by. With its park like views and walkways, the garden is home to many beautiful trees that not only create the ambiance but provide shelter to the abundant wild life. A place of peace for all who visit.
