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)

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

A beautiful park with lots of flower gardens and a large playground for the children. It has a small stream running through the middle of the park.
