Waikanae Lions Super Garden Trail

Waikanae Lions Super Garden Trail Various locations Kapiti Coast

Fifteen inspirational town and beach gardens on the Kapiti Coast in Waikanae will be on display in this
summer’s Waikanae Lions Super Garden Trail that is being held on Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 January 2009. This is the weekend following Wellington Anniversary Day and the change of date for the annual event has been made to avoid the congestion of holiday traffic.
This summer’s Garden Trail provides a rare opportunity to view exceptional gardens ranging from attractive cottage gardens to enchanting compact town and beach gardens to spacious lifestyle retreats with expansive lawns and water features, with all but a few having not been open to the public before.
The annual Waikanae Lions Super Garden Trail’s have over the years been a very popular event for garden lovers throughout the lower North Is and have raised in excess of $300,000 for many charities. This year the funds are being donated to two charities that provide crucial services for the local Waikanae and Kapiti community, the Mary Potter Hospice and Wellington Free Ambulance.
Gus Evans Nurseries and Garden FX Lifestyle Landscapes are again providing valuable sponsorship with plants for sale and for the competitions with all the proceeds of the plant sales being donated to the children’s counselling charity, Kidsreach. Morning and afternoon teas and light lunches will also be available at 42 Ngarara Road to provide a restful garden experience listening to the sounds of delightful music, with the proceeds going to The Cancer Society.
By taking part in the “discover the plants” and “lucky ticket” competitions, visitors could win one of ten prizes for $50 Gus Evans Nurseries plant selections or six $100 Gardening NZ Gift Cards or two Garden FX Landscape Design packages.
Tickets for the Garden Trail and a descriptive brochure showing the location of each garden are available from the Kapiti Garden Centres or from the individual gardens on the weekend of the Garden Trail.
The gardens will be open from 10.00am until 5.00pm each day and for only $15.00 per person per day, visitors can enjoy a great day out visiting these wonderful Kapiti Coast gardens and gain valuable inspiration for their own garden. Children are free but will need to be watched around some of the water features in several of the gardens.
