Very nice gardens right outside of Christ Church, nice area to walk through on the way to the church. It’s a garden dedicated as a war memorial, very nice to walk through.

Enjoy a wonderful walk around the Meadow. Sit by the river and have a picnic, let the children kick a ball about without the worry of cars around.
