At Queenstown Gardens you can admire the native and exotic plant life, and then play a game of tennis or go ice skating. The garden offers relaxing lake and mountain views from its location on a peninsula of Lake Wakatipu. First founded by the Borough Council of Queenstown in 1887, it has since been an important site for community and sporting events. Athletic types should be sure to make a stop here, where they can play a favorite sport or try something new like lawn bowling or frisbee golf.

  • Lovely public gardens, lots in flower when we visited in March. No entrance fee. The rose garden was a favourite. Borders Lake Wakatipu. Easy walk from the centre of Queenstown. Limited parking near.....  more »
  • My husband and I walked through the gardens after breakfast and it’s just beautiful. Well maintained and looked after. Nice to have species names on the trees too!  more »

  • These parks are amazing their are two parks really . You walk though the double sided war memorial which on one side has all the soldiers that died and on the other side has all the soldiers that went to war. You walk past the flags and play ground and into the gardens ,it’s on a peninsula and at the time of year we were there the flowers were beautiful, you also walk past the bowling club to some large trees and walk around back to town by the waters edge watching the boats go past
  • An excellent garden with an exquisite spread of flowers and natural landscapes. Love the huge trees all over the garden. One needs to go there a couple of times just to see the effort put in by the authorities to maintain the environment.
