The Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality are currently restoring the historic Pearson Conservatory in St Georges Park. The 128 year old conservatory was opened in 1882 and has been in need of major renovations for a couple of years now. Its been very sad to see the building fall into near disrepair, so I was elated to hear the news. I remember playing around there as a child while my mom was manning her table at the monthly Art in the Park. The conservatory always had some many different kinds of plants and flowers and there was always a little artificial stream flowing through it. I can't wait to see the end result. This picture was taken a little while ago and obviously the building isn't looking like this at the moment as most of it has been taken apart for the renovation.
