In these rose gardens are two bronze busts, by sculptor Ken Martin. Lady Esther Lipman, was the first female member of Adelaide City Council, for 22 years from 1956. At the other end of the rose garden is her father Vaiben Louis Solomon who was, at various times between 1890 and 1908 a Member of State Parliament, a member of Federal Parliament, and also served briefly as Premier of South Australia.

From here we head just a few metres south to a garden that you can see with a low red brick wall around it.
