“Colourful Clock”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

We enjoyed a brief afternoon tour of Palmerston North, a definite highlight was the Clock Tower in the central park. There were a lot of things to take pictures of and cafes close by. You should definitely stop by and see this at night!

“Pleasant park during the day. Pretty lights at night.”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

The clock tower is at the center of the square and the city. The square is a nice place to relax with friends and possibly have an outdoor lunch on a nice day. There are sometimes vendors in the park, and there are several neighboring take-out places.

Public restrooms at the i-Site.

At night, the constantly changing lights and music of the clock tower can be interesting.

“Palmerston North Clock Tower”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

This clock tower is situated in the middle of the Square and is the focal point in the grounds. There are not many cities where you have a large area of lawn & gardens right in the middle of town where you can sit and relax in the middle of your shopping and with the clocktower you will not need a watch. It is also worth a visit at night when it is lit up.

“clock”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

The clock is right in the middle of the square. You cant miss it. (The information centre is right next door to it as well) At night it lights up into various colours and is quite spectacular. The small fountains at the lake also light up at night)

“Glows well at night”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

I guess we are used to the Clock Tower, better at night as it changes colour, I liked it better with the old cross at the top
