“Best kids park in NZ”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

A fairy tale park with lots of space for kids to run and play. Also a good flying fox, and the local Lions Club were running the kids train during the school holidays.

“great playground”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

Kids needed a break and some fresh air, and boy did they get that. The castle with the moat (dry) and slide, pirate ship with firemans pole, octopus swings, Nursery Rhymes corner and many more. Even the water features that are turned off outside of summer still provided entertainment.

“GREAT PLACE TO TAKE THE KIDS”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

loads of activities to do with the kids adds up to hours of fun to be had and almost a limitless amount of possibilities as the kiddies let their imagination run wild, always look forward to seeing the kids reaction when they find something new.

“Very Fond Memories”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

I have great childhood memories at this park. The best was the shoe house from that nursery rhyme. Such a great place to take your children! They'll never forget it :)

“A youngsters dream Park”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

The park was a popular place any time of the day. it was a playground where my parent's
had taken me as a youngster, and now my own children, who enjoyed having fun.On a fine day, you could just sit back and enjoy the view, take a stroll along the river, take a hike through the park, relax laying on the grass.playing a ball game with the children. having fun with all the different characters at the park, take a dip at the splash, take a ride on the train, then you could take a picnic.
Its a place you would want to come again..

,I would recommend this to anyone passing through to Wanganui
