Good Old Fashioned Fun - Choo Choo!

Such a top spot! This playground is nestled in the heart of Palmy North........right on the Manawatu River. A heap of neat things to do in addition to your usual playground equipment - summer paddling pool, flying fox and of course the miniature train which is super long at 2.2km, the trip takes about 20 minutes and a bargain at $2.50 per person. Don't forget to check out the 'Whisper Dishes'......that is all we are going to tell you 'cause you need to check them out for yourself!!

Great value for money - a lovely 20 minute trip around the bush and gardens. Wonderful volunteers running the railway. Fun for all age groups. Located next to an amazing playground.
