Favorite thing: -

Just the other day I spotted a good service in the Botanic Garden. In front of the Information Centre (which is near the carpark, from Armagh Street & Rolleston Avenue, not near the main entrance on Rolleston Ave, opposite the Arts Centre) there are quite a lot of those wheelchair-like electric scooters.

You can borrow them for free, just phone 941 8888.

People use them a lot, sometimes they are all rolling around in the Gardens. So it makes sense to book one beforehand if you know that you would like to visit the Gardens on a Sunday or other peak times. Sometimes people can still walk a bit but not for hours. So this service gives them the possibility to enjoy this wonderful part of the city.
