Follow the paved path to the busy intersection of Robe Terrace and Main North Road. Here we turn right and walk eastwards alongside Robe Terrace

In 1928, an avenue of about 70 Canary Island Palm trees was planted along Robe Terrace. They're still here, and you can see they are thickest where we turned right near the corner of Main North Rd.

These Palms became such a well-recognised feature of Park 5 that they survived a road-widening scheme in the year 2000. At the time of the road widening they were transplanted a few metres south to stay alongside the new, wider road.
