Leura is known as the "garden village" because of the many attractive public and private gardens in the district. These are showcased each year during the annual Garden Festival. Complementing these are the public gardens in the village centre.
Since the early 1980s, these public gardens have been, and continue to be designed and managed by the Leura Village Association in partnership with the Blue Mountains City Council, to become what we see today.
The beginnings were the planting of the now iconic Cherry Trees, and over the years the LVA has supported the development of the precinct by funding the services of a horticulturalist and fostering a team of volunteers, who together spend hundreds of hour each year to maintain them to the highest standards.
There are many different ways that you can help the Association by volunteering.
