$25 for 2 adults and 2 children under 3 we thought was a tad expensive for what we saw.

Great park with a reasonable variety of birds to photograph and feed. Enjoyed the walk around the garden and among the trees and shrubbery. Garden feel, rustic feel and that open-air-outdoor recreational sensation.

Feeding the pigeons and ducks is a highly satisfying experience - they are unconditionally grateful. The landscaping is very well done and I'd recommend an hour to tour the garden. The café is disappointing in terms of what it has to offer by way of food. I recommend the Nourish Café on the way back to Tauranga

We came with the kids over the holidays, coffee was good, but menu was limited. Not much for children. I ordered a pie and it was just a gourmet microwave one :( But the brownie my daughter ordered was yummy!

Loved the way the doves come and sit on your arm and steal food from your bag or from your hand, the peacocks are great too.
