Really impressed to see so many families making good use of this great park in Blenheim. Good playground area for children. Great path to walk around, bridge to cross, ducks to watch in the water, beautiful gardens to wander around. Lots of good spots for a picnic as well as coin operated barbecues. Great park and good on the public... More

Went for a late afternoon stroll around Pollard Park - lovely rose garden and flower beds, plenty of space for an easy stroll - very relaxing. Good parking and picnic opportunities.

A short walk from our hotel, this was a beautiful place to spend some time on our arrival day. The rose garden shouldn't be missed, but my favorite was the perfumed garden.

An exquisitely designed and maintained public gardens and park. We loved our wanderings there after a 3 day tramp up in the high country. The flower beds were an assault on the optics and the rose garden for which 3 gardeners apologised (has been very hot and gusty over the last month), in actual fact needed no such sentiment expressed....

THis park combines play areas, tennis and pétanque courts, a stream , a wonderful rose garden, a camellia garden and plenty of shade, All very nicely kept for a public amenity.

We've been here many times and have always enjoyed the walking paths through the stunning gardens. The staff must love their work because it is always so nice. We love to walk through the trees and gardens. It has become a favorite of ours.

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.
