Nice park or what ever it is you like to call it. It has a bit of everything really, as well as being a war memorial which was different and impressive by little old NZ standards.

We love Seymour Square. Such a beautiful green park with colourful flowers everywhere. The clock tower is a real stand out with real meaning. Such a peaceful and clean area for all to relax and enjoy.

I discovered this by chance heading back to the hotel to get something in the evening. It made me late but was worth watching.

When we arrived, they were changing the flower beds, we were so lucky, otherwise the flower beds would be bare. A great quiet and peaceful ground to rest, to meditate, to stroll. Very well maintained, great for families.

My kids just loved hearing the clock tower chime and a lovely place to wander around. In the heat the water fountain provided joy and cool.
