Please join us for the AGHS Vic Branch tour of Mont Park led by Trevor Pitkin.
Mont Park was the base for landscape designer Hugh Linaker from 1912 until his death in 1938. The tour will focus on the southern, much-reduced section of the original 1200 acre Mont Park site, taking in Linaker’s legacy work for the Superintendent’s Driveway, Pinetum, The Common, Ernest Jones Hall and Cherry Street Memorial plantings.
