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....

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.

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

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.
