If you want a tranquil, private and relaxed atmosphere for your special event or for your small group to enjoy then Glenview Country Gardens is the place for you. We have five Event Gardens large enough to accomodate up to 200 people each and we have many other smaller gardens, all of which covers approximately 3 acres of our 5 acre block. It is big enough to feel spacious and inspiring but small enough to help keep everyone together.
With beautiful gardens, an American style barn, shade sails, power supply, running water (town supply), toilet facilities, outdoor games to entertain and a large on site car park, Glenview Country Gardens is a desirable venue for your event.
Native Lawn - Surrounded by native plantings, waterfall, stream and pond with a wonderful view of the Tararua Ranges.
Oriental Garden - Traditional Chinese/Japanese garden with water, rocks and natural plantings. A tea house in the centre demands your attention and adds to the Oriental feel.
Oval Lawn - Large Summer House nestled in a feijoa hedge with a large sloping oval lawn. A formal garden with lovely, peaceful surroundings.
Magnolia Lawn - Large flat grass tennis court area protected by windbreaks and surrounded by trees and flowering shrubs. This garden has great vehicle access and is perfect for reception/corporate functions.
The Hill Top - If 360 degree views of the sea, mountains, and Hutt Valley are important to you then this is the perfect spot. This is a large flat exposed area on top of the hill with a real 'wow' factor.
This is where your guests can entertain themselves. With 4 Activity Gardens to use, your guests will find plenty to do.
Games Garden - chess, petanque, and giant siloam (like jenga).
Maze Garden - a berry maze to get lost in or a challenge to get to the lookout.
Bird Garden - for the bird watchers. How many birds can you find?
Orchard - a place for the children to play or a place to sit and relax in while being educated by the many insects and fruiting trees.
Lots of fun for everyone!
