The city of Hamilton decided to establish a park on its old city rubbish dump but there was initially no budget for development or plans to make it different from any other traditional public park. However, through strong community support and sponsorship, a unique form of garden has gradually emerged that’s now being recognised as one of the great gardens of the world.

Peter Sergel, the author, mastermind behind and original director of Hamilton Gardens, explains the hidden meanings behind the multiple gardens, and the story of the transformation into what is, essentially, a unique modern museum that tells the story of humanity.

In 2023 Tripadvisor rated Hamilton Gardens as ‘one of the top three must-see destinations in New Zealand’.
