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 :)

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.

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.

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.
