Scott Garden

In October 2012 a small garden honouring Captain Scott was created on the south side of the Promenade. It occupies approximately the position where the Terra Nova figurehead stood until 1932.

The Captain Scott Garden was designed by Elfed Evans of Cardiff-based Celf Creative, in collaboration with Mo Dorken and the Cardiff Council Parks Service, to mark the centenary of Scott's departure for the Antarctic from Cardiff. A plaque alongside the garden indicates that it was awarded a Silver medal at the Chelsea Flower Show in 2010, and Silver-Gilt the following year at the Royal Horticultural Society Spring Flower Show in Cardiff.
