“Happy memories from my childhood”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

Love this park, it's all well spaced out with lots of room for the children to run around on the grass. When I was a kid it was one of the highlights of visiting Wanganui, if I was well-behaved! Has BBQ's that are free of charge under cover. A wide variety of equipment to play on & good toilet facilities.

“Awesome playground”
Reviewed 4 April 2014

Took our toddler here and the giant dinosaur slide was a huge hit. The playground is huge with a large number of animal related swings, see saws etc. Your kids will love it!

“eNZeds best childrens park”
Reviewed 1 January 2014

I grew up near this park as a child and I remember how great it was to play on the various swings, slides and carousals. The park has been excellently maintained throughout the years and with the addition of the water park and BBQ pumpkin it just gets better.
