Beautiful setting
Apr 2021
Kowhai Park is a place we have visited many times over the past 30-40 years. It has a beautiful setting and is bright and colourful and well spread out. Nothing much has changed during that time and I feel it needs a bit of modernisation (the castle and pirate ship especially) but our 5 yr old grandson had a great time (even though he felt some of the equipment was a bit stinky).

Well maintained playground
Apr 2021
This was a playground I had been to in my childhood. Now as an adult, it was nice to take my own children there.

What struck me was how well maintained it was. We turned up relatively early in the morning and there were plenty of grounds staff tidying and cleaning up the area.

The playground is massive. There are lots of different things to do. Pretty good for kids of all ages. There was a larger play structure for those young at heart.
There is a miniature train.

The toilets were well maintained and clean too.

Blast from the past
Oct 2020 • Family
A park as it would have been in the 70s but perfectly preserved and maintained. The Dino slide and octopus were a hit. The kids went straight to the old merry go Round as well. To top it all off there was a pirate ship and castle too.

Excellent after school fun
Feb 2020 • Family
Most days we take our son for a play at this park after school. The park has so many fun areas to play in and on, which lets the kids expend energy and expand their creativity. The park is very well maintained, has plenty of trees for shade during hot summer days and there is plenty of parking. Walks alongside the river can also be accessed from the park which makes it popular for all sorts of ages.
