Parks and Gardens: City Centre (North)
Emmanuel Road, Cambridge. CB1 1JW • (01223) 457000
Christ's Pieces is situated in the centre of the city, bordered by the bus station, Christ's College, Emmanuel Road and King Street. It is of typical Victorian park design with tree-lined avenues. The formal seasonal bedding displays planted in the 'petal beds' near Emmanuel Road, provide year-round colour.
There are also large ornamental shrub beds around the perimeter to add further year-round colour and interest. In 1999 the new rose garden, in memory of Diana, Princess of Wales, was dedicated by the bishop of Huntingdon and officially opened by the mayor of Cambridge.
