Visit regularly with my grand daughter. She loves the playgrounds and what activities they offer. We have fun on the activities surrounding the park - challenging our skills. The river and ducks always at their best as are the gardens. A must for families to visit and enjoy some time out

Nice park. Runs alongside a golf course though which seems to take up most of the park. I was looking for somewhere quiet to go to read a book in the sun but it was way too busy - too many young families everywhere.

The park is a great place to get away, wander along the stream, feed the ducks, admire the perennial planting sand rose beds.

We stopped here to stretch our legs whilst on a tour of the Malborough region. And the small town has the Most Amazing and Beautiful Garden that you coukd ever find. Our short stay didnt do it justice - tulips, roses, wisteria, crystal clear waters of the creek meandering through the park etc. Take your time and enjoy!

Wonderful spot to stop and smell the roses. Gardens beautifully maintained and wonderful to stroll around. Always take bread for the ducks (and cheeky seagulls and sparrows). The children's area is very basic and a playground catering for older children as well could enhance the park. (Example Raumati Beach playground entertains children up to 12 plus)

This is a lovely gem in Blenheim. Walked through every part of it over several evenings. Check out the rose garden. And some lovely native trees and walks along the stream. Also the play area for the kids is popular.

Beautiful gardens, a good play ground for children, lovely mature park. The river and ducks were very pleasant and the gardeners I spoke to were very friendly.

Who would have thought that a town of 26,000 would have such a sophisticated botanical garden wrapping among its public park? In October, the profusion of poppies, tulips, and snapdragons was eye-popping. There's a tennis center and nine-hole golf course, plus various sports fields, playgrounds and the like. The formal gardens, including 300 varieties of roses and 130 camellias were... More
