Roxborough Park Rose Garden is now bursting with beautiful blooms, marking the start of the garden’s new life after recent refurbishments.
Stage one of the works included the installation of a new rose arbour, concrete pathways, seating and feature sandstone area. The roses are now crawling up the new rose arbour and adding a pop of colour along the feature sandstone area and walkways.
Mayor of the Hills Shire, Dr Peter Gangemi said now is the perfect time to enjoy the garden in its full glory. “There has never been a better time to visit Roxborough Park Rose Garden. The garden has been part of the history of The Hills Shire for 50 years this year, and it’s so important for us to maintain our passive recreation areas so that future generations can enjoy these spaces for many years to come”, Mayor Gangemi said.
Stage two of the works is now underway and will include the restoration of the fountain and the reinstatement of roses in pots, which were removed during stage one of the works for their preservation.
The rose garden will also host this year’s Illuminate the Hills at Christmas event. From 15-27 December 2022, the garden and its 4,000 roses from 80 different species will be brought to life at night with festive light installations.
Visitors can find Roxborough Park Rose Garden and Waves Fitness and Aquatic Centre at the corner of Roxborough Park Road and Mileham Avenue in Baulkham Hills.
