Greenwood Gardens

55 Greenwood Road, Havelock North.


Greenwood Garden is 2 minutes from Havelock North village.   Facing north the garden features 2 distinctive areas. The top garden getting full sun during spring and summer has lawns surrounded by plantings of roses and Rhodos plus many cacti in pots.
Special features include a pond with a large fountain, small waterfalls and 2 outdoor aquarium ponds, all full of fish that gather at the viewing glass panel at feeding time.  The bottom garden is essentially a small bushwalk.  This is where you will hear the native birds, especially the tuis which gather en masse to drink from the bird box set on the deck.
