Riddiford Garden is one of the oldest horticultural parks in Lower Hutt, coming into existence in 1923. It is one of the most significant areas of green space in the city centre, containing a large open lawn and established trees, a children’s playground, a war monument and a conservatory.
A major upgrade project of the park was completed in 2018.
The park hosts events as well as being a suitable place for wedding photographs. We welcome approaches from individuals or organisations who want to use the park for lively and vibrant events.
Riddiford Garden is completely smokefree, along with many of our other public spaces. Please don't smoke in any area of the park.
