Beautiful Maple Glen garden is located in the southern part of New Zealand, besides, it is privately owned. A family garden, whose owners are Bob and Muriel Davison. They bought the land in 1966, when there was only a small house with a small garden. Despite the great interest in gardening, at the time the Davison family could not afford anything more than trivial shovels and rakes. Development of the park began in the early 1970s, when children appeared in the family. Later the garden was called Maple Glen as there were more than 30 varieties of Japanese maples. For many years the garden area expanded, and today all lands occupy 25 acres. Now, on this territory can be seen very interesting and exotic species of plants and animals of different colors.
