Botanic Gardens Walk

Join me and Lucy the Spoodle for a casual, and highly sociable, stroll through the gardens. We will start from the Cable Car lookout point and work our way down to the rose garden via walking paths and bush tracks, crossing the little creek, rounding the duck pond and through the scented garden. Having said that, Lucy does lead the way and she likes to go a different way every time, so a completely different route may occur on the day :-)

We will stop for refreshments at Picnic Cafe - who kindly have doggy water bowls on offer - and sit and relax among the roses for a bit.

We will then head back up to the Cable Car lookout point using the easy (gentle incline) bush route option. Those who want to leave the walk in the rose garden and head off in other directions are welcome to do so.

There is a Tournament Pay & Display Car Park at the Skyline Function Centre right next to the Cable Car at the end of Upland Road. Otherwise you may be able to find street parking closer to Kelburn Village, a 5 or so minute stroll to the Cable Car lookout point.

Lucy and I do this walk in all weather but, if it is particularly bad, I will send out an email by 8.30am on the morning of the walk advising of cancellation.

This will be an on-lead walk for our poochies in compliance with Botanic Garden requirements.

Looking forward to having you join us!

    Thanks Tania and all for allowing me to join late and apologies for Bartok's attitude...turns out he had a special reason for being grumpy. Took him to the vet and he has either a urinary infection or bladder stones :-( good that the vet was still open(thanks Tracey!)

      Hey Paula, it was great that you could join us for coffee, and absolutely no need to apologise for Mr Bartok being a tad vocal ..... understandable, the poor thing! Good that you got him checked out. Hope to catch up with the 3 of you again soon. :-)

    A beautiful morning for it today folks. Many thanks for your company! And cheers Andrea for the photography - hopefully 9 cute little furry personalities (& your always entertaining, also furry, husband :-)) gave you sufficient material for a decent photo shoot. :-)

    Hi Tania and group, I would like to try and join but won't make it to the cable car in time. Can I meet you at the cafe? What time do you think you will get there?

      Hi Paula, sure thing, you are absolutely welcome to join us at the cafe. I'd say around 10.25/10.30ish, we will arrive at the cafe. :-)

    Sorry, I am not free at this time this Saturday but I have posted on www.facebook.com/smalldogsocials and http://smalldogsocials.blog.co.nz/ in case some would like to attend. Enjoy! The bulbs should be starting to look fabulous.
