Taradale Clock Tower Fountain and The Memorial Rose Garden

The fountain was built by the Taradale Lions Club and the Napier City Council Parks Department staff  in about 1972, when there was a major road reconstruction around the Clock Tower.  By building the fountain and closing the road that use to run between the garden and the tower linked them all together better.

The Memorial Rose Garden is in the back ground





The three components of the park - the Tower, the fountain and the sun dial

  8. The clock tower looks like a smaller version of the main clock tower in my home town. I love the look of the park. They did a really good job.

  9. NZ, like Australia does public parks so well. I love that every town and city has dedicated a large parcel of land in the centre to greenspace. Love the roses :-)
