Really nice park that includes trails through trees and open fields. There are some pretty good hills if you want a workout. You can also go quite a way through the hills for a cross country ride or hike. There are a few water fountains...More

Right on the edge of Blenheim is the farm park. Great for both walkers and bikers, i usually try to make it up Vernon once a week. Definitely worth the effort, a favourite spot of mine.

Blenheim is so lucky to have Wither Hills crisscrossed with walkways and cycle tracks. Views over the vineyards and to the sea. Especially beautiful when the vines change to autumn colours.

We set off from the Redwood car park to walk to the top of Mount Vernon. It was still cool at 9:30am and there were only a few other walkers on the track. It was quite a steep and steady climb to the top but...More

We stopped by just to view the main building. Staff were very friendly and told us more about the place and the recent renovations to the dining area. Beautiful surroundings. We did not stay for a meal, but I'm sure it would have been excellent.
