Two young Giant Redwoods stand either side of the gated entrance to Albert Park. They are a little crowded and so you might be forgiven for missing them as you go past. Walking along the pathway to the park, there are two older Wellingtonias in the grounds of the Whitfield Union School, and a further young tree in the park itself, not far from the statue of Prince Albert. This is a particularly nice looking tree, with the typical conical shape of a young Giant Redwood and with its lower branches still attached, sweeping to the ground.

Just outside the park, around the perimiter and possibly in people's gardens, are a further five Giant Redwoods that warrant further investigation when time allows.
