Queens Park is one of Invercargill's premier parks. In 1857 this land was set aside by the chief surveyor John Turnbull Thomson. It was originally covered in native forest and over the years it has evolved to include an intricate blend of contemporary and heritage features including animal reserve and aviary, formal gardens such as the stumpery and sensory garden roads. Other features include broad avenues of trees, a wonderland castle, pathways, buildings, structures and sports grounds. Queens Park is made up of three parts - sports park, premier park (botanical gardens) and special purpose.
