“Kowhai Park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014

Best park in NZ! Kids loved it and great way to tire them out before car trip. Just needs a cafe so mum and dad can stock up on coffee :)

“Best Ever Kids Playground!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2014 via mobile

This playground is huge and has been around for generations! Swings hanging from the bowed tentacles of a giant octopus, a giant dinosaur slide, a huge nursery rhyme boot, flying foxes, tree houses, water guns and fountains.... Totally awesome. Sit under a giant mushroom shaped sun umbrella picnic table and have lunch.... So much to do and play on your kids will be spellbound. It's a bonus if the neighbouring charity train is running that is a great ride to. A great day out.

“Family Attraction”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014

Kowhai Park would be one of the best children's parks in New Zealand. It is colourful and well maintained and suitable for toddlers to early teens.

“Happy memories from my childhood”
5 of 5 bubbles 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”
5 of 5 bubbles 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!
