Construction has started on Invercargill’s new $600,000 Chinese Gardens deep within Queens Park.  Being built beside the indoor Winter Gardens, they are also near our existing Japanese Gardens for sister city Kumagaya.

Invercargill City Council’s rendering of what the finished Chinese Gardens may look like.

The Invercargill City Council also notes that a matching Invercargill garden will also be built in our Chinese sister city of Suqian:

“A recent visit to Suqian by a delegation from the Council helped form plans for gardens here and in China. Suqian has already begun plans on a friendship garden for Invercargill that will be the first of its kind in the city’s Santai Mountain Park.”

What would an Invercargill Garden feature?  A statue of Burt Munro, and perhaps a replica Water Tower?
