Disused Marble Fountain in the Oamary Gardens by Donald Lousley. This old fountain possibly built in the 30s that sadly no longer works, is adorned with marble figurines of lions with wings.

The Gardens were officially opened in 1876, and are one of the oldest in the country.

Provision for their 13 hectares of public reserve between Chelmer and Isis Streets was made when Oamaru was surveyed in 1858.

The Oamaru Public Gardens has quite an established hothouse or greenhouse. I’m not sure when it was built, but prior to the early 1950s.
The Gardens were officially opened in 1876, and are one of the oldest in the country.
Provision for their  13 hectares of public reserve between Chelmer and Isis Streets was made when Oamaru was surveyed in 1858.
