Botanic Gardens’ entrance closes for maintenance

THE Botanic Gardens’ main entrance car park on Lagoon Street will partially close on Monday, June 8, and Tuesday, June 9.

Contractors will install wheel stops in the car spaces, so only one side of the car park will be available for parking each day.

Alternative parking options are available along Lagoon Street, at Tamarind car park (northern Lagoon Street), Meadowlands car park (off Crowleys Road) and at the Australian South Sea Islander car park (off Ram Chandra Place).
