Viewpark Gardens is a horticultural centre that incorporates several types of gardens and glasshouse displays.
Among the features of the gardens are Japanese and Highland plant displays where visitors can view collections such as conifers, heathers, acres and azaleas.
These are great opportunities to obtain ideas about the design and planting suitable to the average house and garden. One of the more striking attractions is the 'Black and White' garden, which uses contemporary materials such as mirrors and coloured paving to great effect.
There are various water features such as ponds, channels and miniature waterfalls that, in turn, attract several types of wildlife including butterflies, dragonflies and various species of birds.
Children can enjoy the modern play area situated within the gardens.
The gardens are closed to the public from the end of September until April.
