What's On

Entering Winter with Spring in Mind

Cockington Green - May 23, 2024

As Winter edges closer, Cockington Green Gardens outdoor team has Spring firmly in mind. Our Spring plantings are nearing completion and the late burst of Autumn warmth has seen some immediate colour in the gardens.

Spread throughout the traditional Spring garden beds this year are many more tulips, which we are looking to add even more spectacular colour to during the annual Floriade period during September and October. Rain will always be welcomed and we are able to cope with the frosts that are now creeping up on us, but it is the Springtime that we always long for in bringing spectacular colour to the grounds.

The outdoor team have also been doing a lot of work in the picnic ground and playground area in conjunction with the recommencement of our miniature steam-train ride operations. We apologise for any inconvenience associated with these works, but this will all soon be behind us.

We will continue to post updates on our website about the train upgrades and expected recommencement. The updates will be included under the “Train Reinstatement Project” tab in the train menu of the website. Again, we are working towards recommencing the operations as soon as possible.
