Themed gardens open at Level 3 Step 2

2 November 2021

From Thursday 4 November, the Enclosed Gardens are open 10am to 4pm daily (last entry at 3.30pm). Slightly reducing our usual open hours will allow Hamilton Gardens staff to work safely in public areas during Alert Level 3.

Staying safe

Your safety is our top priority. To ensure that visitors can keep 2 metres distance from other household bubbles, numbers will be limited in the Enclosed Gardens when required. The busiest times are generally weekends around 1pm.

If we have to shut the Enclosed Gardens due to overcrowding, this will be posted on our Facebook page and Instagram account.

Keep in mind there are parts of the Enclosed Gardens where space is restricted - if it's looking crowded then head to another garden area and come back a little later. It's mandatory to wear a face covering when you cannot maintain 2 metres physical distance from others.
