We looked around Gyro Park. It is so nice with all the flowers. The little ones like to play in the playground and go on the slide. Too bad the swimming pool wasn't open. It looked so inviting for the children. Very shallow. Good for...More

Off the beaten path, but easy to reach by car or foot. Nice view of the city of Nelson and the lake. It was a nice place to visit on our walk after having breakfast.

Nelson has several parks to enjoy, the most popular being Lakeside park. My favourite is Gyro Park, situated on the mountainside, just below the hospital. Green lawns, beautiful flower gardens, several foot paths, a playground, and spectacular view of Nelson below. In the summer months,...More

Gyro park is great for picnics and children climbing in the small outdoor play area but the most fun is running around the trails and overbridges over the running water and gorges. There is a city run pool... free yet....and the kids spend hours there...More

Well worth visiting for the view of Nelson. We even pushed a wheel chair along the path so that my sister could enjoy the view.

Gyro Park has something for all ages. There's a pool and a playground, a gazebo and a lookout where you can see all of Nelson. There are also trails through big trees with benches interspersed. There are also beautiful gardens that are well maintained.

The gardens are beautiful, the lookout gives you a great view of the city and the lake. The pool is for kids only, but is clean and refreshing for them! Great place for a picnic or gathering too.

An extremely nice park near the local hospital. Features a very nice children's pool during the summer months. Fantastic grounds and an incredible look out.

Lots of areas to picnic in the shade. Playground for the kids and a fantastic pool for the youngsters [and adults] to splash around. Lifeguards are on duty for your children's safety. The highlight is definitely the short hike to the look-out where you can...More
