A group of community volunteers have spent many years tending to the roses at the Pāuatahanui Burial Ground, along with our Parks team, who maintain the cemetery.  We have documented the history of the cemetery and the roses, and published a booklet which you can download and print.  You are welcome to visit the cemetery any time, with October–December being the best time of the year when all the roses are in flower.
