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.

It's a very nice town square, very spruced up and a lot of variety. Old memorials though to modern sculptures. If you're a photographer, then a great selection of subject matter for a photoshoot, that you wouldn't think was there. A good location for the Intercity bus terminal if you need to kill time before your bus or during a stopover.

Really well kept with it being in the heart of Palmerston North. Plenty of space to walk around and great deal of seating available; which is fantastic on a nice sunny day. Is great to have with the amount of shops that surround the square. Also greta that it has public toilets and the i-Site within the vicinity for any needed help during its opening hours.

Attractive green space in the middle of the city. Pond, flowers, statues and a giant chess set flanked by shops, cafes, restaurants and The Plaza shopping center. The iconic clocktower looks down over this area.

There is plenty of parking bordering The Square, start your visit to Palmy here as this is also the home of the Information Center (i Site)

A pleasant area in the centre of a city that seemed to have seen better times. There is a clock tower which is quite impressive close to a war memorial. Flower beds and sculptures also enhance the area. Perhaps in need of a bit of attention, but never the less a pleasant place to relax or stroll around.

Very popular area which is used for entertainment and competitions for various organisations. Families can use it for picnics and generally relaxing. Also used for multi-cultural days where the different cultures can display their different food and clothes. There are often celebrations such as Christmas, New Years Eve, Anzac Day, Massey Unversity Graduation celebrations, Young Farmers Day and sometimes an ice skating rink. Very nice area and the City encourages its use. plus it is close to the Mall and shopping

The Square is the heart of the very pleasant city of Palmerston North. The Square is actually a small park with the Hopwood Clock Tower as its centrepiece, there is also a duck pond, statues, I-SITE Information Centre and some very nice landscaped areas for relaxing. I visited The Square on many occasions during my time spent in the city and was somewhere I was always drawn to, it is well maintained and well looked after and worth spending some time there whilst on a visit to Palmerston North.

Overseas visitors may wonder what all the fuss is about as it probably isn't what they would expect to see. It's just a central part of Palmy. Events are often held there at weekends so pop in if you are going past, just in case something interesting is happening. But is it worth a special stop just to see it? No.
