Not having been in Blenheim for two years, one of the places we had to visit, sooner rather than later, was of course its principal park of recreation area, the lovely Pollard Park. Having a couple of young children with us, our first target was of course the children's playground, which is well-equipped, well-maintained, clean and dog-free - a most... More

I found this park to be somewhat difficult to locate even though people had told me it was easy to find. I also had to cross over an extremely busy road where there appeared to be nowhere safe to cross. The park itself was well-maintained and very green. I should have spent a lot longer in this park, and will... More

Pollard Park is an ideal spot to either wander on one's own, with a friend/companion or with the whole family. There is something for everyone - flowers, trees, space, a community garden, a stream flowing through and a plethora of ducks.

This park was beautifully planned, with all manner of picturesque paths and stairs, rocks to climb and explore, an idyllic stream (complete with island and overlooking gazebo) burbling throughout, and a generally gorgeous, whimsical aspect that was truly impressive. A very complete and satisfying park to visit. As cheapskates, and therefore something of park connoisseurs, my partner and I were... More

Very well manicured park with nice playground. Our kids really enjoyed playing there. Beautiful rose garden. Worth a stop if you have extra time in Blenheim, interested in entertaining kids

Pollard Park was beautiful...the lawns and flowers were immaculate. The stream of water and bridges was a great to walk through. We had a wonderful afternoon walk around these peaceful gardens.

Really lovely park to spend time in - great walk on well maintained flat pathways, beautiful roses (some smelled divine), excellent playground for the kids. Lots of photo opportunities and kids had a great run around. Heaps of trees for shade too.

A surprisingly well thought out and maintained garden and park. A good place to enjoy the sunshine, feed the ducks and view an impressive display of roses. And it's free!

Free of charge park in Blenheim great for a walk round for all abilities and ages. There is the most beautiful rose garden, some gorgeous flowers, ducks to feed and a safe kids play area for infants and toddlers. For the older kids there's other play equipment and also gym equipment to have a go at all the way around... More
