“A nice park where the kids can play”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

We spent a couple of hours here for the kids to play on the playground. The playground is first class and the kids loved it. We also went on the train which cost $1 pp for three times around the track. We also did the mini-golf which cost $20 for a family of four.

We had a walk around the lake but this was looking cold, dirty and altogether uninviting; perhaps fair enough given it's winter.

This was a great example of an inner city park and worth a visit especially if you have children.

“Lovely for families”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

Our family - grandparents, parents and 5 children aged from 3 to 10 - thoroughly enjoyed our day here. The children's adventure playground would have to be the best in New Zealand and it was difficult to get the children out of it. The miniature train was another highlight. On other visits we have enjoyed the paddle boats on the lake, to our disappointment they were not operating at the time of this visit. The cafe was good value too.

“Beautiful park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

I grew up in Masterton, so couldn't wait to take my children to show them that park i grew up playing in. There is so many different activities for parents/children to do, the playground, the train, rose gardens, and not to forget the deer park. Fantastic place to visit :)

“Beautiful Park”

This park is very family oriented with a gorgeous lake and playground. There are paddleboats to hire, and also train rides on the island in the middle of the lake.

“Great restaurant in middle of park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2013 via mobile

Whenever we visit Masterton, we have a meal in the restaurant in QE park. Always great food, service & price. The boating lake was a little shallow this year - but there is a drought!
