  The lovely St. David's Park
by seamandrew

One of Hobart's treasures is St. David's Park. Located in the city center, and just off the famed Salamanca street, it is a haven in a city that hardly needs one yet so beautifully green. Having visited in the summer, we were also lucky to see most of the park's flowers in bloom. Try to include this park on your route when heading towards Battery Point. If memory serves me correctly, this park was once the city of Hobart's cemetary.

For those of you with a passion for botany and horticuluture, St. David's Park has wonderful mature plantings of beech, birches, elms with a scented garden along Sandy Bay Road frontage. IT aslo has mass bulb plantings and a good selection of magnolias, fuchsias, rhododendrons, azaleas and camellias.

Directions: At the intersection of Davey Street and Salamanca
