Situated in the centre of the shopping area the clock is nothing really special .But combined with the beautifully kept grounds it is a lovely place to relax and even have a picnic.The I site is also in this park

Its a clock tower - located in a maintained park - not worth going out of your way to visit - but might be worth a look if you are in the area,

We had a view of the clock tower from our Quest hotel room - it was a delight to brighten up our rather drab room.

As per other travellers it is a tidy little park but nothing to do there. Just another clock to tell you the time.

This is literally just a clock, and there is no need to visit it. All it is useful for is checking the time.

Easy to park around the square or by the i site car park. Good walk around the square lots of photo opportunities with little lake statues. The clock is lit a night and changes colour.

This clock tower is in the centre of the square, it’s an icon in the city. At night it has brightly coloured lights which changes colour to add interest.

There is nothing much to see in Palmerston North honestly. This clock tower is the icon of the city which is in the middle of the city.
