These gardens offer a pleasant, rose filled place to pause in the heart of the Parliamentary Zone. Located on either side of Old Parliament House are the House of Representatives Garden and Senate Garden. Soon after parliament opened in 1927, sporting facilities for members within the gardens were created but the roses were not planted until the Great Depression. When parliament moved, the gardens were opened to the public. They were restored in 2004 to their current beauty.
