On the first day after the end of daylight saving time, we brought our furry friend to check out this historically rich and beautiful garden - the Alfred Nicholas Garden.
The park is located at 1A Sherbrooke Rd, Sherbrooke VIC 3789, approximately 50 minutes' drive from the city.
The garden is free to enter, but opening hours are from 10 am to 5 pm. Dogs need to be on a leash throughout the visit, and there are facilities available.
Exploring the entire garden takes about 1 hour, covering approximately 1.6 km. The scenery in the garden changes with the seasons, making it a great destination for all ages. The park is generally sunken, and as you stroll along the wide pathways, you'll pass through various flower beds, towering trees, artificial waterfalls, and finally reach the picturesque lake and the quaint boathouse. Walking over small wooden bridges and sitting in gazebos allows you to admire Mark Stoner's captivating sculptures and enjoy the serene atmosphere away from the hustle and bustle.
When we visited, it was early autumn, and some golden leaves had already fallen on the paths. Returning in deep autumn should offer a different but equally beautiful landscape. Recommended for parents planning to appreciate autumn foliage, it's a suitable place for both dog walking and family outings.
