“The square a must look”

Palmerston North Clock Tower
Reviewed 3 June 2014

Must vist this area that has been developed following the removal of the Railway, and the background music throughout the park has stopped the vandalism and tagging.

Clock tower with the adjacent park and FMG house is dominating the Square (city center). It is
a nice place for sit down and enjoy the sun. There are also some interesting churches to see -
such as The Cathedral of the Holy Spirit & Wesley Broadway Methodist Church on the Broadway Ave.

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!

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.

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.
