Over the years the garden had various functions, however, in the beginning, it was an essential water resource for the rapidly growing colony in the nineteenth century. The renovation has preserved much of the original architecture and today it is an eclectic and suggestive mix of old and new, with walkways, trees, lush flower gardens, and a roof space that it’s a perfect place to sunbathe or read a good book.
