Explore Bank Street Gardens in Galashiels. The gardens are a magnificent sight in springtime when the cherry trees blossom.
The gardens were gifted to Galashiels Town Council shortly after the Second World War. They were laid out in conformity with proposals put forward by Alfred T. Harrison, Superintendent of Parks with Edinburgh Corporation. Today, the gardens play an important role in attracting visitors to the town and they are planted out twice each year with long, sweeping colourful displays set within the well maintained lawns.
