On the banks of the Whanganui River, Kowhai Park is for small and big kids alike! Parents that played there while young bring their children back to experience the same fun. Ride a brontosaurus, check out the pirate ship, swing on an octopus, see-saw with a snake and on a hot day play in the water maze. Weekends and holidays children can ride on the Tot-Town Railway. The James MacGregor Memorial Park is adjacent and extends further along the river.
