Pleasant Point Domain

Timaru Domains

easant Point domain is located at the eastern entrance to Pleasant Point with access from State Highway 8. It covers a total area of 36 hectares. History Much of the land was acquired in 1873. In 1878 the Hoare family, English bankers, purchased Raincliff Station and sent out gardeners from England to plant the Raincliff Station and Middle Valley area. Stocks of seeds surplus to this planting were gifted to the Council for planting in the Pleasant Point Domain. It seems likely that the English gardeners actually planted the trees as the mature trees are similar species and of the same age at both sites. In 1979 and again in 1985 additional land was purchased linking the Domain with the town boundary. Today large trees are dominant feature of much of the Domain when viewed from State Highway 8.
