Expect to hear the sound of mowers and frantic pruning as the gardeners of Westbury Park have a last minute tidy-up ready for visitors on Sunday July 2nd.

Open Gardens is well worth a visit: there is a variety of diversity in planting and design around the neighbourhood, and some gardens simply look beautiful at the height of summer when they are flush with bloom.

The event is organised by local resident Paul Thomas. 

“I have got around 16 gardens, at least four of which have never been open or not in the last four years,” he said.

It’s a family-friendly way to explore the local streets, take a look around the neighbours gardens, explore an insect house in one of the new gardens on Linden Road, and enjoy some tea and cake along the route. Some garden owners sell plants at their house too - all of which raises funds for the Westbury Park Festival charities (see article above).  

Open Gardens takes place on Sunday 2nd July 2-5.30 pm, Maps £1.50/adult from Barry Toogood Flowers on Coldharbour Road or from Paul Thomas at 27 St St Albans Road,  email:  paul@rosemont.plus.com
