The gardens are beautiful and well maintained. I was pleased to see it being kept so clean. I loved the statue near by. There was a lot to offer children and parents.

Nice park to spend a few hours in. Fun for younger children and picnics. There is a mini golf area and a good walk in a very large park.

This park is awesome! So many different things for the kids to enjoy- ducks, eels, flying fox, swings, mini golf & the best playground I've ever taken my kids to. Great for a day out, take a picnic or there's a supermarket across the road or cafes nearby. Lots of space to roam about. Went on a week day so... More

It has everything for kids, a miniature ride on train, ducks and fantastic wooden playground. Not to mention lots of lovely open spaces to spread a blanket for a picnic and / or to play cricket.

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...
