Baring Square East
Baring Square East is an attractive feature of town and the Parks and Recreation staff takes pride in its well-planned, meticulously-tended roadsides trees, and superb parks and gardens.
Mature trees, camellias, rhododendrons, roses and other strikingly coloured annuals surround the town’s landmark clock tower, monuments and fountain while Ashburton’s two main roads, are lined with trees and masses of daffodils.
At the heart of Ashburton’s retail area, you will find impressive oak and ash trees and the railway corridors are camouflaged by mixed shrubs.
Residents and visitors can enjoy the many recreation areas, parks and playgrounds located throughout the town's residential areas.
