Bonnie Richardson & 

Queensland Gardens

Two Stratford public gardens are on Queensland Road, a continuation of John Street South. Follow John Street South past Stratford General Hospital to a stop sign at Stratford and District Christian School. After a left turn onto Queensland, the Bonnie Richardson and Queensland Gardens are on the right. 

There is ample parking in the area. If school is not in session, there may be parking on the grounds and the school grounds are attractively landscaped and well worth admiring.

Did You Know?

Bonnie Richardson, who died in 2004, served as president of Stratford and District Horticultural Society. 

 

 The garden was created as a bequest from her family.

An inviting bench has been placed between elderberry bushes.

It's a great spot to eat lunch, read a book, or just sit and enjoy the nature.

Spot-It

Next to Bonnie Richardson is Queensland Garden, with a fine assortment of plants, such as these early-summer Goat’s-beard, Campanula, Spirea and Scabiosa.

Can you find them?

Bonnie Richardson and Queensland are two very pleasant gardens for quiet enjoyment. They are planted and maintained by members of Garden Stratford (Stratford and District Horticultural Society).
