The opportunity to stretch your legs and catch some of the spectacular Autumn colours on offer at Mayfield Garden is a reality again, after it re-opened to the public last week.
The cool climate garden near Oberon re-opened on Saturday, May 16, in line with the NSW Government's easing of coronavirus lockdown restrictions.
Visitors to Mayfield were also allowed to sit down and eat or drink, with the garden's cafe observing safety guidelines which restricts numbers to 10 at any one time.
Mayfield CEO Frank Crews said he is looking forward to welcoming the local community back to the gardens.
"The state-wide travel restrictions still in place will ensure that the next few weeks at Mayfield will be very much a coming together of the local community," he said.
"We look forward to playing host to residents from Bathurst, Oberon and surrounding areas, all of whom have played a significant role in restricting the spread of COVID-19 in the region.
"I suspect many families who have been largely housebound will be looking to spread their wings a little wider now and we'd love to see them over the next few weeks.
"The garden is still wearing its Autumn coat so it is a spectacular time to be at Mayfield."
Mr Crews also acknowledged the important role played by the NSW Government and police during the lockdown, and Mayfield will continue to work closely with all local stakeholders to ensure that safety remains the priority as restrictions are gradually eased.
The Mayfield cafe will be open from Wednesday to Sunday, from 9am-4pm.
Whilst in isolation, the cafe's chefs have been working hard on updating the menu meaning visitors will get a chance to try some amazing new dishes.
To book a table, call 6336 3131 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Walk-in seating is pending availability.
All menu items will also be available for takeaway.
