  • The greenest grass I've ever seen in wagga. Beautiful. . Take a picnic.. chill out and relax or go for a nice couple hour walk and enjoy the beauty
  • The best thing about Wagga! Its gardens are amazing and theres a real calmness to them. Great massive kids play area, zoo with all the cute animals and of course the trains. Plenty of space to relax as well as a Chinese garden. Very well kept with something for everyone to enjoy
  • Great place for families. Free zoo. Train rides on 3rd Sundays of month, cafe and park. Love it
  • Fabulous place with gardens zoo little more trains and more. Good food and helpful staff. Train volunteers are wonderful.
  • These gardens and zoo are delightful and free to the public! The zoo animals are in clean enclosures, at the time I attended the entire zoo seemed unattended but that added to its charm as I seemed to have the place to myself. The native garden beds were okay, nothing too unusual but it was nice to see some mature versions of garden-variety natives on display.
