This Carnival of Flowers visit Laurel Bank Park for a special display either in the sunshine or the moonlight. This year's fun theme is 'dinosaurs'. Gracing centre stage is the easily recognised pterodactyl in high contrast purple and yellow. There are photo ops for the kids within dino images around the park.
As usual, the park is alive with colourful blooms. The wisteria will be flowering for only a few more days over the shaded bower, so be quick. The peach blossoms are also blooming gorgeously right now.
The theme for 2021 is 'dinosaurs'; the whole thing says 'I see a dinosaur'.
As well as being stunning in the sunshine, Laurel Bank Park enters the twilight zone on Wednesday and Thursday nights. From 6:30pm - 7:30pm, meet your tour guide at the Information Hub for a gorgeous guided tour with a gardener. And they know their craft well. Every friendly, the gardeners will explain the 'darker' side of plant life during these nocturnal tours. Discover the secrets of oak trees, Gingko trees and Japanese maples. Learn of exotic and rare species. September 15, 21 and 22, for $5.
This purple and yellow pterodactyl can also fly by night.
