Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We turned into the park off Tay St en route to the water tower, easily visible ahead. The giant hedges, large open spaces and pockets of greenery makes it much more comfortable than just a bypass. There isn't lot of attractions available but the green is the attraction for us. It was nice to see a swing set in one area and To Do: Fitness Track, Northend Bowling Club, Queens Park Croquet Club, Southland Cricket Association, Queens Park Golf Club, Tennis.
To See: Rock Garden, Steans Centennial Winter Garden, Aviary, Japanese Garden, Azalea Garden, Rhododendron Dell, Stumpery and Natural Space, Herb Garden, Herbaceous Border, New Zealand Garden, Alpaca and Ostriches, Peacocks, Chickens, Ducks, some monkey bars in another. The shade of the hedge and a soft breeze was very refreshing.

Bordered by Queens Drive, Doon Street, Yarrow Street and Don Streets, this park is pretty. Flower beds especially on Queens Drive get your attention. On the way up to or past the Water Tower dependant on which way you are heading. A wide walk through and green grass with tall trees on the Queens Drive corner.

Fabulous vintage car rally taking place whilst there, loved the animals in the mini zoo and was very impressed by size of park and how well it was kept. Also visited Anderson park with the art collection feel you are very priveledged to have that place to visit and all for free, well done.

A beautiful inner city park but more seating would be appreciated. This park is easily accesible from the city centre and has ideal play equipment for children. The park is surrounds on all four sides by roads and is not fenced.

On first glance Otakaro Park is just a very large median strip between two roads, but the space is used magnificently and is filled with massive old trees and colourful flower beds. The semi-circular display at the northern end is magnificent. A nice mix of lawns and gardens, Okataro was also nicely shielded from the road by larger ferns and trees. An excellent little spot for a walk or a picnic – there was even some play equipment for the kids.
