The magnificent pohutakawa tree at Victoria Park, Thames. We are so lucky that our ancestors planted such a beautiful park. The flowering each year appears more magnificent than the last. The area was once part of the foreshore, later reclaimed after the railway line was installed to the Grahamstown Railway Station and Price's Foundry on Beach Road.
Now the town is embarked on further pohutakawa plantings around the town. The trees in Mary Street (between Queen and Pollen Streets) are thriving and also a picture in full bloom. Thank you TCDC; may the plantings continue, and we will truly be the pohutakawa town, and lead on to the beautiful trees that line the Thames Coast Road.
