Pollard Park is a large wooded park on the northern outskirts of Blenheim, with a lovely stream meandering through it. Bridges cross the stream and connect to paved paths on either side. A gazebo at the water's edge is a picturesque feature. Beautifully designed formal gardens cover the grounds. The park is a popular location for picnics and family outings. A golf course is also part of the park complex. The property was donated to the city of Blenheim by William Pollard and was named in his honor.

My grandkids love coming here. Not only do they enjoy the playground but exploring the gardens as well with its bridges, streams and rose garden is always a favorite. Good place to bring lunch and stay for a few hours. There is an exercise track here as well.

A must do as a family while in Blenheim. Newly revamped playground for the older kids and a fenced in playground for the littlies. Take a few loaves of bread the ducks are plentiful and hungry. Maintained to excellent standard, including toilets and paths. A BBQ is available and tonnes of picnic benches. If you need produce there is a very productive community garden. Good facilities for disabled including wheelchair swing and sealed paths etc

Looked online for a walk and this came up. We went along not knowing much about this but had a delightful walk. The teenagers did there own thing and my wife and I went through the gardens leisurely. It was a delightful park with pockets to delight the senses; the cottage garden, the herb and fruit garden, the rhodedendrums althouth not the season for them. Loved the stream and the pegola.

Overall the place is a beautiful place to reflect and enjoy the beauty Blenheim has to offer

We visit Pollard Park every time we are in Blenheim. Delightful, well-kept gardens, play areas for children, clean toilets, easy parking, a good place for a stroll, or a picnic. Well worth a visit.

This is a nice an urban park as I can remember visiting. There is something for everyone from roses, vegetables, flower beds, a stream, trees, grassland, fitness trail and more. A great place to stroll around.
Only thing that would have improved our experience would have been a café.

We spent an hour or so here on a stunning day having a wander around looking at all the plants. Very well maintained with lots of things to see. Loved the stream running thru.

Kids really loved the play equipment in this lovely park whilst we had a quick stop in Blenheim. After spinning and sliding we took a walk through the lovely gardens which are beautifully cared for.
