Arbour (1)


With it's snake like structure, the Grand Arbor in South Bank gently winds it's way for about 1km through these hugely popular and lovely parklands. The individually designed steel 'tendrils' form an arch with bougainvillea growing up and along the wires, creating some shade from the harsh summer sun.

I can understand the popularity. Can't remember seeing something similar in my area.

We are very lucky to have such a great inner-city oasis.

Beautiful composition, AL. The bougainvillea and their shadows are great.

AL said...

Thanks Karl. The shade this provides is very welcome with the heat.

I love the arbour - I saw a picture after the floods and it was terrible, but it looks great now, they've done a good job cleaning it up. I love the markets around there too!

You would never know that we had the floods in the city centre...and all of South Bank has been renovated after the big clean-up...It's a great space Kirsty.
