  • It’s a very nice place. I was there the day before the LUMA festival so there were some works going on. It has a few good spots for pics and it doesn’t take long to walk.  more »
  • These parks are amazing their are two parks really . You walk though the double sided war memorial which on one side has all the soldiers that died and on the other side has all the soldiers that went to war. You walk past the flags and play ground and into the gardens ,it’s on a peninsula and at the time of year we were there the flowers were beautiful, you also walk past the bowling club to some large trees and walk around back to town by the waters edge watching the boats go past
  • An excellent garden with an exquisite spread of flowers and natural landscapes. Love the huge trees all over the garden. One needs to go there a couple of times just to see the effort put in by the authorities to maintain the environment.
  • There is also a desirable place in Queenstown, which is the garden of Queenstown. Queenstown garden is located on the edge of Wakatipu lake. The calm water of the lake is blue-green, which sets off sailboats, buildings and mountains. The scenery is infinite. Flowers, trees, flowers, grass, fountains, ducks, everything in the garden is so harmonious.
  • Beautiful place to walk around and wind down after an adventurous day in Queenstown. The plants are really well looked after. Beautiful views of the lake as you walk along the water. Great place for a picnic too! so peaceful
  • Very beautiful area to walk around and there is a lot to do for all age groups. You could enjoy the walking, biking trails, ponds, rose gardens, frisbee golf, ice skating rink, bowls club, skate park or just laying everywhere on the grass and enjoy the day.
