although it was raining during our visit, it was a pleasant stroll in the city of Nelson. Nicely combined with a visit to nearby cafes.

A nice and easy to navigate place. Visited this with my wife and son(2 years) would recommend for a good afternoon walk and time to relax. The canopy of trees are really nice.

This is a very charming park, with a beautiful layout and impeccably kept. You can stroll along for 20min or take your time. There is also a nice café in there.
