Pannett Park has a fun and friendly family environment that everyone will enjoy.
There is a peaceful lily pond to sit by in the shelter or surrounding benches where dragonflies often play, plus a reflective spot in the Commemorative Garden with wonderful views and an inspiring inscription in the sandstone walls for the kids to think about.
There is a play area with a maritime theme, which is based on designs by local children and has something for all ages from about 3 years through around 8 or 9. Good visibility from the benches for parents.
The Jurassic Gardens form a link with the fossil collection in the local museum, with huge lush plants similar to those from that period of time and a footpath with details of fossils that are likely to be found in the area and a really cool replica of a Gharial crocodile to check out.
The Community Garden is definitely worth a look as it is where local groups are developing gardens with food crops, plus there is an outdoor classroom.
Connected to the park by Union Terrace is the South Seas garden with more luscious plant samples that reflect the Southern hemisphere and has Maori artwork and imagery to enjoy.
It is a good idea to check online before you visit as a number of events and activities are held throughout the year.
