Sculpture in the Gardens
closes on 25 February
Beat the weekend rush! Weekend parking is at a premium,
visit mid-week to avoid the crowds.
Summer is back! – the walk takes about an hour and a half,
so please use the free sunscreen at Huakaiwaka visitor centre,
make sure you pace your walk, seek shade and take a drink with you
and use the drinking fountain at the Rose Garden.
Parking will be busy, especially on weekend afternoons, so arrive early or visit midweek
for the best chance to park close by. The overflow carpark is currently unavailable.
Best visiting times are from 8am till 4:30 weekdays, and 8am till 5pm weekends,
when Huakaiwaka visitor centre is open.
We have free guided walks to suit a variety of paces…
– Sundays at 10:30am you can join a tour of the sculptures with our artist guide – this is a 2km walk over 1.5 hours,
taking in the whole exhibition. Free and no booking needed. Meet at the visitor centre.
– Selected Thursdays and Fridays at 10am we have a gentler, conversation based tour of a few of the works.
– Wednesdays at 1pm a Gardens staff member leads a 1 hour walk around the seasonal plant highlights, and takes in a few sculptures along the way. Free and no booking needed. Meet at the visitor centre.
– Audio tours – suitable for visitors who are blind or have low-vision are available, there are more details here.
