These gardens were originally built for the Superintendent of the Parramatta Lunatic Asylum, in 1906. The wisteria plants were brought from Japan by his daughter.
The gardens are only open the last two weekends in September (during the Wisteria festival). You can get there via the Cumberland Hospital entrance at other times, but they really look their best in September.
Area: Parramatta Park
