Winter bedding and palm trees, Torquay Princess Gardens
A colourful display of flowers even in the middle of February. The tree in the flower bed is Cordyline australis, known locally as the Torbay Palm.
Princess Gardens
The Princess Gardens are named for Princess Louise, Princess Royal and fourth daughter of Queen Victoria, who in May 1890 laid the foundation stone for the "pleasure ground" and Promenade Pier (completed June 1895). The foundation stone is located between the Princess Theatre and the War Memorial. The gardens were opened in 1894.

One of the most eye-catching features which still dominates the gardens today is the cast iron ornamental fountain which was a gift from Mr H Young from the nearby Torbay Hotel.
