Gardens of the Downs is a self-funded not for profit organisation which allows the general public to view outstanding garden displays in our local community. 

It is aimed at promoting an awareness of the range of benefits to be gained from gardening.  With this in mind, admittance prices are kept to a minimum and visitors under 18 - the gardeners of the future - are admitted free of charge.  All monies generated are used to cover costs with the remainder being donated to charities.

Gardens of the Downs is an exciting concept aimed at all gardeners - novice and veteran.
