Cook Park, Orange

4.6
#2 of 7 in Parks in Orange
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.

    Lovely avenues of trees in a thoughtfully designed park. Aviary, duck pond, rose garden & a CWA shop with lovely cakes. Dogs on lead ok. Well worth a stop.  more »

    I take my elderly mother here for a walk. It is always full of families picnicking. A lovely spot missed the tulips this year.  more »

    A great park any time of day or night. We wandered around the park after dark, all rugged up, and it was a great experience. The ducks were all going to bed and we saw possums playing in the trees.

    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.

    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.
