We spent some time here in early January while our car was being serviced. We're from Wellington and hadn't been to the park before.

It was really beautiful. It's a huge place with at least a couple of playgrounds (I think for different aged kids?), lovely gardens and so many beautiful trees. There's a miniature train track running through it. And the bird aviary and hothouse were lovely to look at. This place is a real credit to the Council, thank you.

We will definitely return to explore the rest of the park. Also enjoyed a lovely coffee at the cafe in the park.

A 26 hectares of bush walks between matures trees, with bike tracks, playground and garden with bird park and conservatory. It’s got something for everyone in the family – walking through thousands of mature trees, exploring river esplanade, enjoying splendid rose garden, doing barbecues, picnic spots, playing croquet lawns, stop at café, and the kids will love the Junior Road Safety Park, miniature railway, playground and paddling pool. Entry is free, so have a great time for the family. Brilliant.

You can tell by the state of this park howmuch respect kiwi's have for their land. Vibrant and diverse flora, lots of paths (hardened and gravel). My family and I love to go on a sunny day. The best thing about it is the diversity on what to do. There are : paddling pool, duck pond, playgarden for kids, mountain bike paths, garden area for stroling around, massive playground for kids between 1 and 12. Even weights and fitness places to train.

We make sure we stay close by so we can walk to these gardens. Its a haven for walking and relaxing. The rose garden is a particular favourite.

If you would like to have a short walk in a beautiful place, you should visit this garden which is located central in the city. You can almost drive a park your car in all parts of the car. I think some parts of the park was not looked after. However, quite a beautiful park and worth visiting at least once.
