The Tour de France ‘peloton in pursuit’ show garden has been recreated in the council’s public garden on Bond End in Knaresborough where the Tour de France will pass on 6 July.

 

Harrogate councillor Phil Ireland, who has responsibility for the parks service, said: "This small public open space on Bond End  was the perfect setting for this new garden.  The lie of the land was right, the size was right and the most important link is the legacy that the Tour came through Knaresborough.

 

"The garden shows a typical Yorkshire rural scene with dry stone walling, cyclists and sheep.  It is lovely garden that I hope residents and visitors will enjoy.   I am especially pleased that it will be open before the Tour arrives and I hope everyone will agree that the workmanship on this truly unique garden is incredible.  I would like to congratulate everyone involved and particularly the council’s parks team and Knaresborough in Bloom."
