Cook Park, Orange

Garden Nature / Park
Cook Park was laid out with straight paths and rows of trees, and much of that original design is still in place. Between February and May each year, hundreds of begonias bloom in the Blowes Conservatory. Other attractions are the historic trees dating back to the late 1800s, duck ponds, aviaries, arts and craft shop and the fernery as well as many interesting plants.

  • Stroll through the park with it's lovely shade trees, wander through the pagolas/green houses. Take a picnic lunch & sit under the trees, let the children play on the swings or feed the ducks.  more »

  • Yeah..... it's a small park. Sure it's nice. Well laid out... surrounded by beautiful houses. But in the middle of winter there isn't much going on. You can't even get a coffee or tea. It's just a lit...  more »

  • Cook park is a superb small park that demonstrates the result of nearly 150 years of tender loving care. I love the Giant Sequoia trees and the huge cedars and Bunya pine. The display in the Begonia house is outstanding. It is sad to see the devastation caused by the Elm beetle to the magnificent English elm trees.
  • Beautiful park to walk around. Very interesting variety of trees and flora that I hadn't seen before. It's also dog friendly which is a bonus!
  • Beautifully maintained park, perfect for a stroll with your dog, kids, or your coffee. Visited on a hot summer day, plenty of trees giving us lots of shade to slowly stroll around with our dog. Has a rose garden, a beautiful duck pond so be sure to bring some stale bread. Swings for the kids will keep them entertained, while adults can relax on many of the well maintained seating.
  • Lovely Park for relaxing or having a picnic. Lovely duck pond and beautiful collection of flowers in the green house.
  • Kids love coming here to feed the ducks and visit the aviaries. Love feeding the cockatoos and galah. The greenhouses are lovely and the little souvenir shop is worth a look. There are clean and tidy toilets. The only downside is the lack of playground though there is a set of swings.
