Pretty little spot right by a gardens, park and stream. Only 3 (very small) spots but one was empty all night when I stayed. Toilets nearby as well as countdown, takeaways and other shops

Beautiful place! The only downside is that there are only three small places available, but otherwise this is a great place: there is a pharmacy, laundry service and a supermarket nearby, beautiful park with tables and benches. Also, a city free wifi (and a Spark wifi for Spark customers/sim holders) within walking distance

We were lucky to grab one of these 3 spaces as we got there around 4pm. Still, we were the first there. Great spot in the park, perfect place to enjoy the afternoon sun, or play some disk golf. Toilets a little wall away, but clean and in good condition. Not a place for large vehicles.

Better not have a van bigger than a car or you would block the entire carpark. 3 really small spots... Looks nice but couldn’t stay as our van was too big and two other small vans were already there.

Very scenic spot, seemed to be free as we couldn't find anywhere to pay. Laundromat nearby. We ended up here because the spot at Queen Elizabeth II at Nelson had a few drunk gents hanging around.
