QE2 Park has many paths for various walks, as well as superb beach on the western side. From the Mackays Crossing end, there are trams to ride, and a memorial to the US marines stationed here in WW2. From the Paekakariki side, its a short drive, or not too long a walk, to good cafes, and to the train station... More

I live in Masterton, and I always visit Queen Elizabeth park, there is lots to do, from taking a leisurely stroll around the lake, feeding the ducks, stopping in at the cafe and having brunch, lunch or even just a coffee, there's a miniature train that goes around the park, a supermarket straight across the road, to a big park...

Having grown up with this park as a child, then after leaving Masterton returning to visit with my children, and now with five grandchildren, this park is still a lovely place to visit. I love the lake and the ducks and the trees are so tall, have always loved the band stand and Pleased it is still there. I loved... More

This is a wonderful place for kids. We were there most of the day and didn't see everything (we missed the aviary). Great playground (although it would be great if they completely fenced it in, as it is so big that it is easy to lose track of your kids), flying fox, fun paddle boats (cheap ice blocks) where you...

Don't miss it. The family of adults and 2 kids enjoyed everything about it. Check out the train, boats, playground, wide open tree-lined spaces

So much to do here, we took our 3 kids and highly recommend it. The Playground is very unique and probably the best free playground I've ever seen!

An enjoyable place to have a picnic or enjoy with the family or friends. It is a stunning location full of beautiful scenery and an expansive playground. Well worth a visit if in the area.

Take time out to cross the bridge and see the deer, have a row on the lake and the playground has a lot to offer the children. Toilets close by and the trees provide a lot of shelter from the hot Masterton sun.

Heaps to do at this Park - esp in the summer! Boats on the lake, mini motor bikes. Feed the ducks. Ride the train. Take a picnic lunch and stay ALL day. Swimming pools right across the road.
