  • Took a couple here for family photographs and was treated with plenty of colourful backdrops and scenes to create good photos. Could do with a few more detailed gardens with emphasis on seasonal planting, but it appears well maintained.
  • Great fitness circuit at the park with 10 different stations. I take my bands and pushup bars and get a free workout in a beautiful surrounding. Never too busy
  • A great place for a family day out. Take a stroll through the various gardens such as the roses and natives. The sensory garden is an excellent experience too, especially for those who are visually impaired but want to able to enjoy a trip too. There is an exercise course that runs the perimeter with instructions on how to use it all. The children's play ground has a number of different activities for kids as well as a fenced playground for younger children. There are a handful of pay barbeques for you to take advantage of as well as decent space to through a ball or frisbee around. To top it all off if you hang around until it gets dark the trees near the playground are lit with coloured lights giving another opportunity to enjoy the grounds.
  • One of the best places in New Zealand. Its a bliss in paradise although not being an identity of the country and a place known to lot of people. I have fallen in love with this park. Hats of to the people who work hard make this place a miracle of nature.
  • This is such a good park! It is honestly the perfect park to go in blenheim. There are such good quality toilets and a big playground and lots of fun bridges to walk across. Not to mention the amount of ducks there is! The kids love feeding the ducks. There is also a go for course and big patches of grass for the kids to run around on. Our of all the parks in blenheim would definitely recommend Pollard park
