Upper Gardens, Bournemouth
Upper Gardens, Bournemouth
"The Upper Gardens originally resembled a lake, being badly drained. The Durrant Estate drained the area bringing in broken pottery from the clay works higher up the valley as drainage material. The considerable strip to both sides of the stream was set out for the purposes of public recreation, with the higher ground being sold off as building plots ... In 1992 the Upper Gardens were re-furbished to provide an interesting variety of walks and areas for passive recreation with good vistas. New trees have been selected to increase species diversity" LinkExternal link
