  • Between the Alfredstreet and the Henrystreet is a beautiful little park in the middle of the War Memorial Clock Tower with names of many who lost their lives. There is also a fountain surrounded by beautiful trees, shrubs and beds with flowers. Everything is well maintained.

  • Saturday market! I got my nieces Christmas presents in here. Yellow cute apron and wood spin. Tasty cherries also can be bought at cheap price too. You must visit if you go Blenheim.
  • Lovely place, I went there many times when I visit my friend from Blenheim. It's a small park with a war memorial clock tower. Amazing fountain which lights up at night time when the fountain changes colour. Very close to the caffe shops, restaurants and shopping centre. I will share some photo with you because I want to be sure you will be curious to visit this place.
  • lovely place nice memorial
