At the foot of Clifton Hill is a lovely outdoor garden area known as Oakes Garden Theatre. The garden was built in the 1930’s and up until last year there was a covered area around the top of the garden. A few months ago the roof of this area was removed. I can’t say that I don’t dislike the new look. This is a favourite place for workers in the nearby souvenir shops, restaurants and hotels to have their coffee breaks. Here are a few shots of before and after the roof was removed. I’ve also included a few shots of the early springtime flowers found here.
