The Bay Hill Piazza offers a link between Timaru’s CBD and Caroline Bay. It was opened by the Mayor Wynne Raymond on 27 September 1997.

Before going down to the Bay take the time to read about some famous Timaruvians on the information board; appreciate Llew Summers’ sculpture ‘Encircling the Baroque’ and Debbie Templeton - Page’s bluestone carved sculpture entitled ‘Bronze’.
If you are feeling a little disoriented you can take the time to get your bearings on the bronze compass on the circular brick plinth.
There’s also the fountain to enjoy as the water tumbles along a stepped channel and cascades down a 16-metre drop into a pool at the bottom of the piazza steps.
The next stop is the Trevor Griffiths Rose Garden. Stand at the top of the Piazza steps and gain a bird’s eye view of the garden. From there take the stairs down to one of its many entrances.
