Visited with young granddaughter who never tires of going on the train feeding the ducks or just sitting enjoying a ice cream from Mr Whippy.

What a brilliant playground. One of the best outdoor council operated playgrounds I've seen. Kids had a blast. Liked the mix of old and new. Old tractors and bulldozers and a flying fox alongside climbing frames, swings and slides. The wooden structures were being well used by all ages. The train operating was an added bonus. Clean toilet facilities too.

Plenty of parking, seriously amazing playground, ponds with lots of inquisitive ducks and birds. A short walk over a bridge to a very small deer park. Perfect for a picnic. Excellent free activity.

Went there for a game of mini-putt. Park is very well laid out and is the perfect family spot. Went on the miniature railway as well. Right up there with New Plymouth's Pukekura Park which is the bese in New Zealand.

Thank goodness the weather was fine! We walked 5.6 kms around the park and the highlight was the deer being fed by a family that took their own carrots and apples for the animals. Apparently they are 'rescue' deer and have been taken in from the wild and farms, so the local dad told me. There were many people jogging,... More

We visited the park to play in a sports tournament. A lack of rain meant that the grounds were very hard and dry. As Autumn was approaching the trees were just starting to turn colour. It would look magnificent with a bit of water on the ground. There are a number of other facilities including a skate park and large... More
