Roxborough Park Rose Garden Restoration Complete

By Dr Peter Gangemi – Mayor of The Hills Shire Council

The upgrade to Roxborough Park Rose Garden has officially been completed and is open to the Hills community.

Over the course of the works, upgrades have been done to install a new rose arbour, a feature sandstone area and restore the onsite fountain. Works have also been done to the stairs, border edging, construct concrete pathways and put in a new irrigation system and park furniture.

With over 4000 roses from 80 different species, there has never been a better time to visit the Roxborough Park Rose Garden. The rose garden is the biggest in NSW outside of the botanic gardens and an absolute icon of the shire.

I wanted to thank the Australian Government for their $660,000 contribution to the project through the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure program. Combined with the $972,000 of Council funding, the Rose Garden has been transformed like never before and I highly encourage Hills families to check out the whole garden this Easter long weekend.
