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.

The boats rental would only opened when the weather is suitable. So, better check before going. We went there on Boxing Day after heavy rain. Sad to say nothing was opened although the rain stopped. We went again on New Year Eve and finally we could experience the double kayak!
My daughter loves kayaking very much and wants to do it with me. Queen Elizabeth Park Boats allowed us to kayak together. It was $17 for 2 people. (20 minutes) The duration is long enough for us to have the "journey" around the lake once.
The staff was so nice. He helped us from choosing the life jacket to collect everything back.
It was nice to kayak there with the ducks and other boats. Other than kayak, you can ride different boats or swan peddle craft. Great for family, lovers or friends. you can also wave your hands to the passengers riding on the mini train!
The lake has quite a lot of seaweed. Just be careful about them.
We enjoyed the time there!
We can use card to pay for the boat rental but you must have cash for the mini train ride.

The park was beautiful with the blossoms all out . The weather was great for a fun day on the boats in the lake and playing sport on the fields. The skate park was full with kids having fun. A nice area for picnics around the lake watching the little red train go around .

This is an old fashioned park and simply wonderful to stroll around. I have many many happy memories of visiting here as a child. Going back as an adult after many decades was just as enjoyable. This park is for both young and old. It is easily accessible for mobility impaired people. There is so much to do for children and I expect the pedal boats on the lake and the miniature train ride would be the favorites for sure. There is a lovely cafe in the park with indoor and outdoor seating. or take a picnic lunch and sit under one of the huge oak, elm, magnolia, or cherry trees. The neighboring cemetery is also lovely to wonder through. Masterton is one of our older settlements after all (settled in 1840) so there is a lot of history in this cemetery. . Also worth a look is the big swing bridge over the neighboring river. I'm sure children would love this!

I saw people walking their dogs on leaches so i presume the park is dog friendly.
On a hot summers day the park is especially enjoyable and Autumn is pretty lovely too.

This review is about the Park itself, not the boats, as they weren't open when we were there.

The Council have done some upgrading of the facilities and have put in some new seats, and also some tables with bench seats - see photo.

It was a nice way to spend an hour with our thermos, watching the ducks and the other birdlife. Although it's mid-winter, there was no breeze to speak of and so long as you had a good jacket it was rather pleasant.

Well worth the visit on a sunny day - close to many other events in the town of Masterton and the road out of town to Castlepoint and Riversdale Beaches and Castlepoint Lighthouse (also must visit places). Boats are great fun. Ducks are about.

We have visited Masterton for many years and love stopping off at Queen Elizabeth park - mainly to have a go on the boating lake. The boats are in good condition and the staff are friendly and welcoming. They help you into the boats and gave us advice about where we could see some of the native birds that nest along the lake. They sell small bags of food to feed the ducks and other birds that you will see amongst the willow trees. It's a very picturesque setting and a lovely, relaxing way to spend an afternoon in Masterton.
Our children never get bored of the boats or the park and always look forward to going back there. The playground area is also very good, especially the flying fox and the wooden fort!

Found out about his activity in the local newspaper. Warning - only open at the weekend. Great fun activity, reasonable price. The only comment I have is that they didn't warn us that the swan boat would not fit under the bridge!
