Parks & Gardens
Newquay’s maybe best known for its beaches but our hidden delight is the Trenance Garden and Boating Lake.
With the large, well kept gardens with glorious rose beds and well maintained paths, this is a pleasure to visit and a great place to relax. Enjoy a cream tea in the restored Trenance Heritage Cottages; now a small museum recounting the history of workers in bygone times. The boating lake makes the area a little wildlife haven with ducks and geese but also allows you to hire pedalo’s or row boats to really make the most of it.
Newquay has also little gardens and parks around the town with seating areas to just take in the views. In the town centre is a little grassy area, named the Killacourt, with colourful raised flowerbeds that give you a panoramic view of the sea. The Killacourt has the town bandstand with regular weekend town bands appearances, plus it is also a popular location for other outside events and charity fairs.
Further afield Cornwall has dozens of gardens from the subtropical Trebah gardens on the south coast to the famous recovered victorian gardens, the Gardens of Heligan, just outside of St Austell. The Eden project is the most unusual garden with it’s vast temperature controlled bio-domes representing several different climates. There is also a large garden out side of the domes with loads of informative and educational sections about the Eden Project itself and what it represents.
When you are down come into the Visit Newquay Tourist Information Centre for our useful gardens map which highlights the many gardens open to the public throughout Cornwall. There is also the useful National Garden Scheme leaflet which as well as listing gardens in Cornwall also list highly regarded private gardens that are open for just for a few special days a year.
