    Rose bushes

    In the past, City of Nedlands staff have provided flowers or petals to members of the public, upon request, for special events.

    Due to a dramatic increase in the number of requests, the City has been forced to restrict the gesture to authorised community and charity groups.

    This decision has been made to ensure staff can continue to ensure the Peace Memorial Rose Garden remains a special place for everyone to share.
