- Down on the Esplanade is a miniature scenic railway. It loops through native bush around the playground and back again, covering off 2.2km.
- Fancy some shopping? The Square is always a good bet. If you're after clothing for the whole family why not take a tour of Ezibuy? It was started in Palmy 30 odd years ago and is still going strong. Plus the end of season sales has people driving there from Wellington, Taupo, Napier and beyond!
- Once you've seen the Esplanade Gardens, a visit to The Turitea campus of Massey University should be next. Their gardens are stunning with many walkways on
which to stroll.
- Palmerston North is the home to three tertiary institutions: Massey University, Universal College of Learning (UCOL) and International
Pacific College. Because the city is so student based, the population drops by some 15 000 people during summer when the tertiary providers are closed.
