“Intriguing fountain”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2013

Lovely and Edwardian. Fun to follow water cycle and photograph at best phase. Has had a checkered history. Read inscription plaques nearby. Better still, take a Caterpillar Garden Tour starting close to the fountain. An opportunity to learn heaps about one of the world's premier Botanic Gardens.

“Just OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Not that impressive, really, just nice to stroll by and take a photo or two. What's nice is that there are some benches along the side of the pathway around the fountain if you want to sit down and take the sights and sounds in.

“So Pretty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2012

From the entrance to the Gardens you can see this it is nice and bright
and anything to do with water is peaceful that is how I feel about it.

“An unusual water feature in Christchurch Gardens”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2012

I love the way that the fountain has been moulded and created to form a fountain that you can't help staring at. The more you look at it the more you see. There is seating nearby where passers by can sit for lunch or just to contemplate. Its situated in a sheltered area, with easy access.

“Victorian Beauty in the Gardens.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2012

Some years ago there was nothing there. The fountain has been restored and looks beautiful in the setting. Fortunately, it survived the earthquakes, unlike the building you can see behind it.
