Find something for all the family at Queens Park, recognized in New Zealand as one of the nation's most important parks.

  • Incredible park! Something for everyone for sure! Playground for the children, situated near the Cheeky Llama Cafe. Rose Garden, Museum, with a cafe inside. Tuataras. Birds. Golf. Yes, something for everyone. And, plenty of space and walking! Other then some individuals visiting an smoking where the playground is (non smoking area), and dogs in the playground (no dog area). It's a great place for friends and family!
  • Its a pretty decent park. A little small for bikes but still fun to ride. Only downside is most good days its pack with scooter kids until around 9pm. I'd really rather not run into them
  • This is a super fun place to go with your family, friends or just for a stroll. There is an animal reserve, a bird aviary, an amazing playground and lots of other fun things to do and see.
  • This has to be one of New Zealand's best city parks, there's stunning gardens but most importantly for the kids there's a plaground area and splash zone which kids went crazy for. Also a Woodland animals area with everything from rabbits to Wallabies - totally unexpected also there is a museum and two cafes and kids play castle there is also a "fitness track" that allows you to enjoy all kinds of physical activities, including machine assisted ones. On a nice day a must see.
  • Amazing park - the best park in New Zealand. Great for walking and exploring. Check out the animals corner and aviary. Hot house and cactus 🌵 kingdom were my absolute fav. Well done Invercagil for creating and maintaining such a beautiful park in the center of the city.
