Queens Park

Queens Park Review

The 200 acres in the center of town that make up Queens Park create a fine layout of public gardens. Included are two rose gardens with both modern and "antique" rose varieties; a Japanese garden complete with meditation area; and an impressive hothouse, which acts as a sanctuary on a wet day. The park has miles of gentle walking paths and waterways, an 18-hole golf course, and a decent café. There's also a small zoo area and an aviary with a walk-through section that children love. The main entrance is next to the Southland Museum.
