I happened on the park by chance when my partner wanted to go see the golf course. It is a wonderful park, well worth an hour or so of wandering, looking at the trees and the flower beds. Nice tennis event courts, and great little nine hole golf course

In easy walking reach from the town centre, this is such a calming place to be, such lovely roses within very well kept gardens.

Gardens are spectacular and the river and trees stunning. There is a great playground for the kids and even a golf course for those who are keen. A very special place to visit again and again.

Pretty, garden park in the centre of town. A great spot to relax in the sun or shade. Nice mix of mature trees and structured flower beds. Fountain and other interesting features, including historic, war memorial clock tower (with working chimes).

Great park for a range of ages. we had a picnic and plaed a game of cricket, then the kids ran off to find eels (they claim they did, but I am pretty sure it was a stick)

Basic garden setting and not overly overwhelming. Nothing of great interest to entice me to visit the gardens when I'm next in Blenheim.

This is a beautifully laid out park and gardens that is worth taking the time out to see. There are various displays, a lovely selection of gardens and waterway areas as well as park area for children. Some lovely photographic opportunities await you. Recommended.

This is a pretty small park in a nice quiet neighbourhood. We had a lovely picnic lunch in that park. There are handy seatings and table next to the children playground, duck pond, exercises/jogging areas, and a beautifully designed edible garden.

This is a wonderful peaceful way to spend an afternoon strolling through the gardens which are very well maintained and an asset to the town.
