“Twee colourful tower”

Palmerston North Clock Tower
Reviewed December 30, 2012

It looks like a parcel has been plopped on top of the clock tower. The ever-changing colours are garish, more suitable to a theme park than a city centre.

This has to be the worst clock tower I have ever seen. Definitely not worth taking time to look at unless you are studying 'outdated and displeasing architecture'.

The illuminated glass bricks at the base are an amazing backdrop for nightime photos...very unique and very clever!

It's nice. Nothing to rate as a sight to see. The park around it is nice with some fountains, sculpture, and a large outdoor chess set, but none of it is a thrill.

Its what it is a clock tower. Cant say that its interesting as its so so. Heaps of skateboards and kids hanging around and not a place you would want to hang around. Has potential and is better than it used to be.
