Iron Ridge Quarry Sculpture Park

Our latest garden to list is Iron Ridge Quarry Sculpture Park which is nestled against the dramatic landscape of the Waipara Valley wine region, an easy 50-minute drive north of Christchurch City. Raymond purchased the abandoned lime works in 1997, and since then the Quarry has been transformed into a magical wonderland, with Raymond's graceful, strong sculptures set against a carefully curated native garden, all under the shadow of breathtaking limestone hills.  Many artworks both large and small are on display throughout the park.

Creating the park replicates the same process Raymond goes through creating his sculptures. “It took heaps of work and heaps of time,” Raymond says. “It went on and on and on. But I really loved it. I think you have to be an eternal optimist to do something like this. There were things that were difficult, but I could always find a way of solving a problem.
