Charity Garden Open Day: Portrack, The Garden of Cosmic Speculation

Forty major areas, gardens, bridges, landforms, sculptures, terraces, fences & architectural works. Covering thirty acres, the Garden of Cosmic Speculation uses nature to celebrate nature, both intellectually and through the senses, including the sense of humour. A water cascade of steps recounts the story of the universe; a terrace shows the distortion of space and time caused by a black hole; a "Quark Walk" takes the visitor on a journey to the smallest building blocks of matter and a series of landforms and lakes recall fractal geometry. Charles Jencks and his late wife, Maggie Keswick, conceived this unique garden in 1989 and it has been evolving ever since. More information at www.charlesjencks.com. Directions: Holywood one and a half miles off A76, five miles north of Dumfries. Please follow signs.

11:00am-5:00pm. £10.00, concessions £5.00, accompanied children free. Full price tickets may be purchased in advance by booking online at http://portrack2017.eventbrite.co.uk. Proceeds to Maggie’s Cancer Caring Centres & SG Beneficiaries
