Ferrymead was much more vibrant and happening back in the 80's. Even though we went on an event day, there was little happening and was disappointing. Won't be back.

A beautiful heritage park that desperately is in need of vibrancy and lift. A first glimpse into the park is when one enters the main area whereby we buy tickets. Absolutely disappointing! The staff are dressed in their ‘normal’ everyday clothes, and there’s coffee machine...More
