Seniors Picnic + Tour of Miramar Prison Gardens

  • Miramar Prison Garden Collective Mount Crawford Maupuia (map)

YOU MUST REGISTER: by emailing or call 04 388 1944. Please let us know if you have any mobility issues as this is unfortunately not wheelchair accessible.
TRANSPORT AVAILABLE: If you need transport, we have limited space in a van so get in touch. If you can get there by yourself, bus no.24 stops right outside - get out at Mt. Crawford 6261. If you are driving, you can park at the old prison, corner of Main Rd and Nevay Road.
The path to the gardens is a little hard to see but is on the Shelly bay side.

Don't be put off by the name, this is a beautiful community garden that is hidden away up on Maupuia hill. It used to be tended to by Mt Crawford prison inmates when the prison was in use, however now it is just community allotments, vegetables, fruit trees, flowers, herbs nestled amongst native and pine forest.
If you would like to help out with the baking for the picnic, please get in touch - timecredits availiable.
