Centennial Park, Frog Hollow

Frog Hollow is a formal garden area in Centennial Park. Originally the site of an open drain, Frog Hollow was established around the turn of the 20th century in the triangle formed by Grand Drive, Dickens Drive and Parkes Drive. It features nine circular garden displays planted with coloured and patterned plants such as this display of Canna Lilies.

    Lovely shot, Jim. We are lucky to have well-maintained public parks and gardens in our major cities!

  10. Wonderful photos of the park Jim. I have always wanted to visit but have not had the time to do so. Seems like it takes up a large area of land.

  16. These canna lillies clumped together are so bold, demanding attention! Beautiful! And adore the name "Frog Hollow" - reminding me of "Wind in the Willows" fantasies!
