Hopetoun Crescent Garden Summer

The garden has had a bit of a makeover in recent weeks with the planting of some shrubs and the labelling of some of the trees. There is now a “tree trail” that you can follow  through the garden to learn more about trees.Tree Trail

The Garden has had another reason for good cheer with the awarding of a Green Flag for the year 2016/2017. The Garden received its first green flag in 2009 and we are delighted to have achieve it again. Well done to all concerned.
