Garden of International Friendship
The garden includes a viewing tower and a large red sandstone wall with 'windows' that echo the remnants of Coventry's city wall nearby. In addition there is a low semi-circular hedge maze in clipped box on white spar chippings in the northern part of the garden. Designed by Kate Whiteford, it is based on an elaborate floor tile design in which concentric rings radiate from one corner of the tile in such a way that four placed together form concentric circles. This design was often found in medieval cathedrals, including Coventry's St Mary's. The concentric arcs of hedging and gravel roughly correspond with arcs in shallow relief on a gently curved wall opposite the maze across an intervening footpath. In the southern part of the garden, a sculpted triangular earth mound adjoins the viewing platform. The theme of international friendship is picked out in lettering on the walls and viewing platform.
