Government Gardens

Government Gardens的土地是毛里酋長Ngati Whakaue1880年捐獻出來的,為了「成眾生之善」。

 

Government Gardens是火山活躍範圍,百年前它是長滿野草的沼澤,仲有冒泡高温池塘。

今天這裏是一個很漂亮的西式公園,仲有博物館、公眾浴池、小花園與無數回憶。

 

 

The land of the Government Gardens was given by the original Maori owners, Ngati Whakaue in 1880.

Ngati Whakaue said, ‘It was for the benefit of the people of the world.’

 

The Gardens is a volcano active area and it was once part of a swampy, scrub-covered wilderness with steaming pools and mud.

Today it is just a western garden with a museum, a public bath, a small garden and countless memories.
