Ferrymead Heritage Park Reviews
Awesome place! What a great way to spend a lovely Sunday. It's such a great sight to see everything oldie in this place - brings you back to the time when life was much simpler and carefree. Loved seeing the old printer models, old telephones, old house interiors and even an old vacuum cleaner! The tram the traverses through the heritage park accentuated the old school feel of the place and highly recommend to take the tram ride as well. The visit here was truly worth it!
Went on a Monday so a little quiet. Didn't feel the bustle of the last visits. Still stayed 2 hours, quaint ,tram ride excellent and my 8 year old didn't want to leave. Great education for children and rich history for adults.
