  Trevor Griffiths Rose Garden

Roses are an important feature of the Timaru landscape. The most significant rose garden is the Trevor Griffiths Rose Garden situated adjacent to the piazza and close to the shores of Caroline Bay. The rose garden opened in 2001 and is a collection of roses collected by world renown rosarian Trevor Griffiths. Designed by Sir Miles Warren, the garden is remarkable with almost 1,200 roses in an architecturally designed setting complete with arbors, pool, and a fountain – mostly heritage, species and David Austin varieties of roses.
