“My Favorite Place for a Walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2012 via mobile

I regularly come to the esplanade for a bit of outdoors walking when the weather is just too nice for a gym trip. The scenery is fantastic and is surprisingly well kept. The esplanade has something for everyone. An overall nice place. :-)

“Give your eyes a treat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2012

I have visited these gardens or driven through them many times over a space of 70 years and each visit has a unique focus. It may be rhododendrons, cherry blossoms, roses or a variety of trees, mature or new species. The drive through is interesting; expect a treat for your eyes.

magnificent gardens on the edge of the city! There are also miles of riverside paths and forest walks; what an amazing asset for Palmerson Nth.

“Absolutely Fabulous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2012

From the rose gardens to the bush walks, miniature railway, cafe, mini zoo and pools, kids playground and ducks. This has something for everyone, and is always in tip top condition all year round. While the CBD may be the centre, the Esplanade is really the "heart" of Palmerston North.
