“Great for children”
Reviewed August 5, 2013 via mobile

A must if you have small children. There is the scare park, the lake to feed the ducks or hire a paddle boat. The mini put and cafe Cecillle. Plus a lovely playground for the kids. Collect acorns to go over the spring bridge to hand feed the red and fallow deer.

“a must for the family”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

QE Park is great for the whole family, plenty of things for the kids whilst the cafe across the road does great coffee.
positioned well in Masterton you have easy access to a number of amenities to help you fill the whole day.
the park has great adventure playground, mini golf and plenty of room for the kids to run wild
close by is the pool and a supermarket to get some items for an impromptu picnic
it is well worth putting some time aside for a family visit to QE Park

“Great for children”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Queen Elizabeth Park in Masterton used to be a beautiful place to visit when local people were employed to tend the gardens etc, with the grandstand to watch the cricket/athletics, and other events on the oval, the aquarium and the shop to buy ice creams - but sadly the beauty of it has faded over the years and now it has turned into a great play area for children, with the train around the island, the deer park, paddle boats on the dirty lake, ducks trying to survive, mini golf, flying fox, swings, slides etc and a Cafe to enjoy a meal. The new convenience (1) is a "join the queue" one - be aware of this. Hopefully it will be returned to its original beauty in the not too distant future.

“A Jewel in Masterton”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

The QE Park in Masterton is a wee gem - with a wonderful 'village green' cricket ground as its central feature. But it also is full of mature trees and some gardens, with an ornamental lake with the usual multitude of ducks looking for the 'treats' that small children will provide on a lovely sunny day. Heaps of activities for families with children of all ages. A miniature train circles the 'island' in the middle of the lake. You can be as busy or as relaxed and inactive as you want in this haven from town life - and its within walking distance of the local I-Site - just across the road in fact. Highly recommended for either a little R & R or an opportunity to entertain the children.

“Beautiful park”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is a beautiful park, with lovely old tress, great playground, a oval surrounded by majestic trees, and out the back it has an aviary with lots of birds, and if your lucky the peacock will display their tails.
