The Hamilton Gardens is an outstanding public park contributing to the social, cultural and economic good of Hamilton.


Hamilton City Council is reviewing the Hamilton Gardens Management Plan to reflect the current aspirations for the development and management of the gardens, and a Draft Management Plan (2019) has been produced. It provides an overview of the way the Gardens are managed, and includes proposed developments to address transport, access, and safety issues.


  • The inclusion of the proposed, staged developments including proposals for new feature gardens and a new entrance and visitor centre.
  • Proposed changes to the layout to improve access.
  • The option of an entry fee to parts of the gardens for non-Hamilton residents.

Please read the full plan at www.hamiltongardensmanagementplan.com/  or a hard copy can be collected from Hamilton Gardens, Hamilton City Council’s main building or any branch of Hamilton City Libraries.

We invite you to attend one of the Open Days in the Chartwell room at Hamilton Gardens on:

  • Wednesday 1 May 4pm to 7pm
  • Sunday 5 May 10am to 4pm
