To help with the restoration of the ground, Queen Anne's Ride will be closed Monday - Friday. It will be open Saturday - Sunday and Bank Holidays. Please observe the signs and rope barriers which are in place for your safety.
We are preparing the Totem Pole for restoration work which has been delayed as a result of the pandemic.
Working with Canadian specialist restorers and direct descendants of Chief Mungo Martin, the original carver, the Totem Pole will be lowered later this year before a lengthy period of drying, repair and restoration. Although still fundamentally sound, an exclusion zone has been placed around the pole to guarantee the safety of all.
This important landmark in the Great Park needs careful restoration so that it can be enjoyed by future generations in complete safety. The restoration work will follow the complex operation of lowering the Pole.
Crown Estate representatives were present in Vancouver in November 2018, when an identical pole - see pictures, carved by Chief Mungo Martin at the same time as the Windsor Pole, was lowered from its position outside the Vancouver Maritime Museum. The lessons learnt from this will allow us to safely lower the Windsor Pole, whilst at the same time ensuring that all necessary First Nation customs, are observed, as preserving heritage and tradition is as important as preserving the fabric of the pole.
Wet lawn areas of The Savill Garden are closed to allow the ground to rest and for grass to re-establish. These closures only effect certain routes within the Garden and will not impact your experience when visiting.
Birds are nesting on the ground in areas of the Forest.
Please follow any signage on your visit to avoid disturbances.
