The main walled and roofed entrance of the Huangshi Chinese Garden is located off Tasman Street in Nelson. The garden has been designed to enhance access by all visitors, including wheelchairs, albeit with a lumpy ride over the traditional pebble paving stones.
The site selected in Queens Gardens is well suited, with several trees of Chinese origin providing a shaded, quiet space. The large 120 year old camphor laurel tree on the opposite side of Queens Gardens’ pond, coincidentally, is native to Hubei Province where it is the state tree. It is used as a street and civic tree in Huangshi.
You can visit the Huangshi Chinese Gardens daily from 7am to 8pm.
