The Harry Springett Rotunda was erected to commemorate 50 years of continuous service to Local Government and the community by Harry Springett.

The Harry Springett Band Rotunda was erected in the Gardens and officially opened by the Mayor of Wingecarribee, Jim Tuddenham on Sunday 22nd December 1996. The rotunda was donated to Wingecarribee Council for the enjoyment of residents and visitors to the Gardens by Ted Springett, Harry’s brother. The bricks and pavers were given by Bowral Brickworks. This ‘replica’ band rotunda was installed on top of the 1984 fountain base and walls. As a result the 1996 band rotunda was located in a different area to the original 1914 rotunda which was adjacent to the park’s main access path in the centre of the Garden. 

Note: Note: The original 1914 band-rotunda removed in the 1960s was restored and can be found in a private garden in Burradoo.
