The peach blossoms are in full bloom right now, don't miss them.

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.
