This is a perfect parents playground. The main attraction is the Cobb n Co train and kicks off around morning tea time. Pockets of peace are hidden on the smaller statue walks, otherwise there are tons of educational play choices.

This is a place for the family especially those who have little children. The park is small but packed up with some amusement.

Just like the rest of Taupo, this area is also clean and tidy. Heaps of places for picnics and general taking in the views.

So pretty, so peaceful with mature trees and meandering pathways through thick native bush with leaves of varying shades of green. We walked and talked and enjoyed the break from travel and busy places. Well placed seating added to the pleasure.

We've been on the playground before but today was the first time we've been on the train! It's a neat petrol power car system but the kids loved it! Run by the taupo lions, totally worth its $2 per person.
