This is a beautiful park close to the centre of Blenheim. The gardens were magnificent but the highlight for me was the fountain in the centre at night time. What a great light display there was. I watched it for some time and loved it.

This is one of our favourite places to visit. Even on a rainy day it was still lovely. Toilets are usually clean and tidy. When the roses are blooming they are great to photograph.

We had several walks through this well kept park and even in March the flower beds were still in bloom. The stream running through the park is a real feature attracting ducks of course which appeal to all the little tots as well as the small climbing/play area near the car park. The rose garden had mostly passed its best... More

Really impressed to see so many families making good use of this great park in Blenheim. Good playground area for children. Great path to walk around, bridge to cross, ducks to watch in the water, beautiful gardens to wander around. Lots of good spots for a picnic as well as coin operated barbecues. Great park and good on the public... More

Went for a late afternoon stroll around Pollard Park - lovely rose garden and flower beds, plenty of space for an easy stroll - very relaxing. Good parking and picnic opportunities.

A short walk from our hotel, this was a beautiful place to spend some time on our arrival day. The rose garden shouldn't be missed, but my favorite was the perfumed garden.
