Anderson Park

Park in Invercargill

Stretching over 24 hectares, this beautiful park includes landscaped gardens fringed by an expanse of native bush, plus a children's playground and duck pond. Sadly the centrepiece, an elegant 1925 Georgian-style mansion, is off-limits to visitors while it undergoes earthquake-strengthening work.

When (and if) a solution is found to fortify the mansion to meet safety standards, you'll be able to visit the 1951-founded gallery within, which features works by many prominent NZ artists.
