Elizabeth Park Rose Gardens, Maryborough

The Elizabeth Park Rose Gardens was the site of Maryborough’s second official cemetery which closed in 1873. As the town expanded the cemetery was deemed a public health risk, and by 1907 moves were made to remove headstones and remains to the new cemetery. In 1921 the land was converted to a public park and is now full of beautiful roses that simply delight the senses when in full bloom.
