Whether you are 1 or 81, at Whanganui River TOP 10 you won't run out of things to do to entertain yourself!
Playground & Jumping Pillow
Our main adventure playground is growing constantly and great fun, complete with monkey bars, swings, slides, balance beam, climbing net, bouncers, sea saw and more. You'll need to keep coming back to see what gets added next.
Next to this we have our fantastic Jumping Pillow. Young or older, it's hours of fun (and will certainly wear those energetic kids out).
There is a second adventure playground area by the outdoor BBQ behind our Games Room.
Trikes and Bikes
Choose from a double trike on which mum or dad can do the hard work peddling and the little ones can relax and enjoy the ride (or the other way round, depending on who has the most energy), a sturdy single seater, or a four seater trike for the whole family to cruise on.
One and two seater trikes are just $5 hire and the four seater is only $10 for 30 minutes!
For those that want to get out of the park and explore the area, we have a 5 trail bikes in a variety of sizes plus one standard kids bike as well, perfect to get the whole family out on a bike ride. Whanganui has plenty of cycle lanes for you to get around town. Our park is located along the Mountains to Sea Cycle Trail so you are able to ride out to where the river meets the sea or up river to the Upokongaro Cycle bridge. Hire is $30 per bike for 1/2 day (4hrs) and $50 per bike for a full day (8hrs/until reception closes).
For young and old alike our indoor games room has something for everyone.
