Botanic Gardens Walk

***UPDATE***

Lucy the Spoodle of Kelburn sends her apologies - she is holidaying out of town this weekend and will be unable to attend our regular Botanic Gardens walk & cafe session. Bristol the Schnauzer/Terrier of Mt Victoria has very kindly agreed to stand in as Walkies! Event Co-Host in Madam Lucy's absence.  We look forward to catching up with everyone for a nice walk and coffee in the gardens. :-)

-------------------------------

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!

    A most excellent day for a strut & pose around the Botanic Gardens. Madam Lucy would have been suitably impressed by the way young Bristol confidently marked the entire gardens as his territory & flirted with the cruise ship tourists.:-)
