“Great place for the children”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

Set in a large sheltered area, it provides brightly coloured swings, slides, water features, story book figures, and a tot town railway that runs around the castle. Perfect for children, and is constantly being extended with new features, like skateboard area, flying fox etc

“Try the ice cream”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

A walk along the Wanganui River. Well known for its kids playground and zip wires. Boats for the larger kids (adults) to also get wet by. Try the ice cream in the small Dairy on the other side of the road to the car park. Drive another 30 minutes to see the 3 sided church tower.

“Fun for "Kids at Heart" too!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

We popped by the park before heading back to our hostel - it was a fun little place. Obviously more fun for kids, but as young adults, we enjoyed walking through it and maybe going down a slide or two ;) Very creative and has more of a theme, so better than your average park. It's also close to the river, so very pretty as well.
