Your Council

Kevin - Gardener

Hi I'm Kevin. I have been working as a gardener for the Palmerston North City Council for the past 33 years.

Palmerston North is basically flat which I see as a great advantage. It is easy if you like getting around on a bike or going for a walk.

We have a University, Polytechnic and a very good education system. There are many sportsfields, parks and gardens, and in our Esplanade there is a world recognised rose garden. We have 45km of walkways and developing more all the time.

We have all types of clubs and organisations so there is something for everyone. There are great trout fishing rivers within a 60km radius of Palmerston North, we are a half hour drive from the nearest beach and only two hours drive to our capital city Wellington. I am certainly an outdoors person and this is the reason I live and enjoy every moment of being a part of a lovely city like Palmerston North.
