Green Escapes


How often do you stroll around your local garden? Once a week? Perhaps once a month? Or do you subscribe to the excuse that your city has zero green space? If it’s the latter, Toby Musgrave, a lecturer and acknowledged authority on garden history, has news for you. His new book describes 280 peaceful sanctuaries in 164 cities around the world, from leafy pocket parks and secluded monastery cloisters to tropical conservatories, edible gardens and gorgeous green spaces. Back home, he highlights the Old Parliament House Rose Gardens in Canberra, The Sydney Garden in Melbourne, the Himeji Garden in Adelaide, Wendy’s Secret Garden in Sydney and more. The perfect pocket or backpack-size, the book offers directions to the gardens, some history and design elements. Pack a backpack, friends. These little-known, off-the-beaten-track gardens and green spaces are well worth the visit. KD
