The The New Town Gardens Queen Street Gardens 3871

Introduction

Queen Street Gardens comprise three gardens running along the north of Queen Street. They were designed as communal pleasure grounds in the early-19th century. The central garden contains a pond reconstructed from a farmer's cattle pond and a Doric pavilion that served as a tollhouse. Most of the original path layout and terraces survive and the gardens are surrounded by thick shrubberies.
