Cook Park, Orange

(100+ reviews on the web)
Garden
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.

  • Always a pleasure to walk through here and discover what the new season brings. Was a little shocked to see some of the huge trees covered with bats, can't remember them from last time. Have they take...  more »
  • Lots of ducks! Wish we had of taken some corn to feed them. Beautiful trees, roses, lovely little bridge, swing set. Also an aviary with birds including a talking cockatoo. Well worth a stroll, picnic...  more »
  • This park is on the edge of the town centre, easy walking distance and a great spot to wander thru and enjoy. The small shop is also fab for homemade items from the locals. Enjoyable hour or so.  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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • A great example of an old-school Country NSW city park. Fantastic bird aviary, green houses and duck pond. Some swings for the kids and lots to explore. :-)
  • this is a beautiful park many weddings are performed here dog friendly must be on lead good place for a picnic and a playground for the kids or the young at heart local shop in park where you can buy arts crafts jams cakes and much more opened everyday not xmas or new years day
