“Lovely Day out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2012

I have brought my new Fiance over to share with him my home town of Wanagnui. I chose to bring Chris out here as it is one of the nicest places to go relax, chat have something to eat and enjoy the wildlife and scenery. I want to thank the Botanic Gardens for keeping this place as beautiful as I remember it from a child. I hope to be able to share it with my new familly to be and one day my own family. Thank you Wanganui for the support you give for these beautiful gardens, and the great job from the grounds people.

“A natural picture”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2012

Takes at least 90 minutes and still stuff to see. Walk round the house gardens and notice the timber frame view point. Brilliant. Some steep hills to climb either going or coming. We went twice.

“Acres of beautiful gardens to enjoy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2012

This has to be one of Wanganui's best kept secrets! Lots of beautifully laid out historical gardens, hothouses, conservatories, barbecue areas and flowers and plants of all descriptions to enjoy.

“Bason Reserve”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2012

Excellent place to take the family, Have been many times. Evening BBq's with work mates or friends & family. Never seen it so busy as when we went on boxing day. BBq's are free. Loads of grass for the kids to play. Recommend to everyone.
