Reviewed 2 May 2018

A lovely fountain at the front of the gardens - lots of seating to rest your weary feet . The Peacock Fountain was bought by the Christchurch Beautifying Society from money bequeathed by John Thomas Peacock, a trader, politician and philanthropist. The fountain was unveiled in 1911, moved to a new location some years later, and put into storage in 1949. After a $270,000 renovation, it was commissioned again in 1996, in its third location in the Christchurch Botanic Gardens. It has an elaborate colour scheme and is a much photographed tourist attraction.

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.

An elegant feature of Botanical gardens. The finale of our walk through, and close to museum. A nice place to stop.
