In 1969 the Sunken Garden on Marine Parade was built after a visit by the then Mayor, Peter Tait, to Durban in South Africa. Though I'm not quite sure what the relevance of that is! It's a splendid garden. The rockwork and rock wall was carried out by Len Crompton, a stonemason from the Cotswolds in England, who was then on the staff of the Parks and Reserves. The wall contains examples of rock from all over New Zealand.
