Over the course of the works, upgrades have been done to install a new rose arbour, a feature sandstone area and restore the onsite fountain. Works have also been done to the stairs, border edging, construct concrete pathways and put in a new irrigation system and park furniture.
With over 4000 roses from 80 different species, there has never been a better time to visit the Roxborough Park Rose Garden. The rose garden is the biggest in NSW outside of the botanic gardens and an absolute icon of the shire.
I wanted to thank the Australian Government for their $660,000 contribution to the project through the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure program. Combined with the $972,000 of Council funding, the Rose Garden has been transformed like never before and I highly encourage Hills families to check out the whole garden this Easter long weekend.
