another great treasure for Blenheim

Went here for a relaxing sunday afternoon, plenty to see, lovely gardens that we both loved. There is a good play area for the kids and plenty of seats for us to just relax.

A lovely park. We spent a wee bit of time here kicking a ball about as well as having a picnic. Lovely rose garden. Well worth stopping to smell the roses.

Pollard park is a lovely park, with a nice play area for children (suitable for children of all ages), a water body and ducks. Whats not to like!

I visited a number of parks in New Zealand and I found Pollard Park the best. The landscape is beautiful with green from tree and colorful flowers all year round. You will find transquility although within the playground. The location is within walking distance from Blenheim downtown.

A great park to visit - easy access, good parking, fun playground, toilets, beautiful gardens to explore with a gentle walk way to walk or cycle around and a stream full of critters with ducks to feed.

My husband and I run an bed and breakfast in Blenheim and we try and get all of our guests to go to Pollard Park. It is really lovely. A beautiful spring fed stream, a golf course, gorgeous flower beds, great play area, good exercise track. Go for it.

To find a park/botanical garden of this size and beauty in a small town like Blenheim says a lot about how special this community is. I found it hard to drag myself away. The trees are absolutely amazing....I was there in autumn so there were massive drifts of fallen leaves and the local kids were having a ball rolling in... More

Fantastic place to take the kids. Great playground for all ages and beautiful gardens to enjoy. It was an easy walk across the river from our hotel too.
