These magnificent, Edwardian-style gardens are within walking distance of Kew Junction shopping centre, and the picturesque setting makes them ideal for functions.

A fine example of a Federation landscape, the gardens feature expansive lawn areas surrounded by beautiful avenues of mature trees creating shady glades and pools of dappled sunlight.

Deep foliage and shrub borders surrounding the gardens offer brilliant splashes of seasonal colour. With a magnificent perennial border as a backdrop and a decorative rotunda overlooking the lily pond, this park is a popular place for wedding ceremonies and other functions.
