portal

a doorway, gate, or other entrance,
especially a large and imposing one

~~~~~

Upon entering the

Hamilton Botanic Gardens

in New Zealand’s North island…

…visitors have a two or three minute walk

before reaching central circular feature equipped…

…with archway portals into the

various other sections of the gardens.


Adjoining gardens are also equipped

with features…

…doors and archways…

…all of which have a short description

(foreground path left)

before entering the portal,

of what to expect in the new section.

Some portals are well gardarded.

Even on the return journey the guards

are rather imposing.

This was a fun portal.

The gates opened automatically. 

Children would love it.
