“Picnic at Victoria Esplanade gardens”
Reviewed July 30, 2012

Lovely place, very peaceful and picturesque. Beautiful rose gardens, lovely bush walks, play areas for the children, bird avairies, plenty of parking. Lovely old tea rooms in the gardens so you don't even need to bring your own food.

“Good Family fun”
Reviewed June 20, 2012

This is an awesome facility with everything from BBQ's for Families to a huge playground as well as the miniture train. The gardens here are lovely to walkthrough and it connects rigth onto the Manawatu Riverside Walkway. The only thing that dissapoints me is a few years ago they proposed a huge walk in avery which was scrapped by the Council for being to expensive

“Rose gardens in full bloom”
Reviewed May 20, 2012

Always a nice place for visitors to the city - walk along the river, through the ferns, past the aviary, through the hot house (open weekends) and to the rose gardens which are full of beautiful blooms at this time of the year :)

A favorite and roses are great, although we were a little late. Autumn colours coming through beautifully. Birds are always interesting.
