New look for city garden
Suva's historic Thurston Gardens will have a new look later this year, with plans in place to build a national war memorial and museum on the site. The garden is located at the junction of Queen Elizabeth Drive/Victoria Parade and Cakobau Road (which runs along the side of Albert Park). In recent years, the gardens had not been well tended and was overgrown at times. The proposed plans should be able to bring the gardens to its former glory. The Fiji Museum is located at the other end of the gardens towards the offices of the Public Service Commission and Thurton Courts. Thurston Courts are used for outdoor netball games during the netball season.
