Cancelled due to ill health

Update 12th April: This Event has been cancelled due to ill health.

This traditional garden features large trees, massed groundcover and prominent hedges framing distinct outside activity areas in summer shade.   Well paved paths guide the visitor around this ‘Tocumwal’ dwelling.  This is one of the 200 American Army Air Corps homes constructed in 1942, which were moved from Tocumwal in the Riverina to Canberra in the late 1940s.  Most ended up in the O’Connor cluster of 8 streets. #Tocumwal Precinct O’Connor.

Rachel and Gabriel have rented this property for a short while and, with the agreement of the owners, are progressively restoring the gardens to complement the dwelling, its surrounds and streetscape.

The Finn Street Park Gardens and Nature Playgrounds nearby linking the Precinct and the O’Connor Cooperative School provide a good picnic venue.

Garden notes will be available.

Charity: Finn Street Park Gardens.
