Pukekura park began in 1876. I will show you the parts I liked.
2 red bridges if you look deeply into the photo. This is Poet's bridge . Poet was a racehorse and his owner gave money from his winnings to build the bridge.
There are many walkways in and around the lakes and bush. There are gardens of many sorts ( rhododendrons and azaleas. )
Reflections in the lake.
The fernery is amazing.
Begonias and Coleus and other house plants.
Coins and gold fish.
By one of the walking tracks was a lovely waterfall.
On the sports ground a cricket match was in progress.
Massed displays near the tea house.
It is a vast beautiful park and I have only covered some parts of it here. A real assets to the city.
