Floral Gardens

We maintain many public gardens throughout Tendring, these include gardens in Clacton, Frinton & Walton and Harwich & Dovercourt. The floral beds in the gardens are planted twice a year; in late May for the summer and again in October for the following spring. The numbers of plants used across the Tendring District is in the region of 250,000 per year. The displays are designed by a member of the horticultural staff and are planted and maintained throughout the year by our grounds maintenance staff.

The Seafront Gardens in Clacton are often described as the 'jewel in the crown' and are admired by locals and visitors alike. They are frequently used as a focal point by the Clacton In Bloom organisation in the annual Anglia in Bloom Competition. In 2007 the Memorial Garden in Clacton was given the honour of the 'Best Local Authority Floral Display' at the Anglia in Bloom Award Ceremony. The Crescent Gardens in Frinton-on-Sea are also used as part of Frinton In Bloom's portfolio, who have been frequent winners of Anglia In Blooms 'Small Town Award'.

Both Clacton Seafront Gardens and The Crescent Gardens are Green Flag Award winning sites. To enjoy our coast and gardens, why not try the Clacton Seafront and Garden Walk.
