Situated in Hagley Park, very near the Museum. As good as many other fountains, but nothing special. Nice if you pass it, but you won't have missed much if you don't.

This is a fountain right next to the museum and in front of botanic garden. The design of the fountain is gorgeous. You can stop by on your visit to the museum or the botanic garden.

This is a beautiful fountain within the botanic garden. Worth visiting if you are nearby. Nice place to just sit quietly watching the world go by.

Perfect site to visit after the Cantebury museum. There is the fountain at the entrance but it is the exensive gardens and canals beyond, full of large, old trees which are a MUST VISIT.
