The Founder’s Park is Nelson’s tribute to it’s own history. It’s preserved the way Nelson looked in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. The beautiful streets and tranquil gardens are the result of an effort by Nelson citizens in the 1970’s, who even donation over 20000 historic artefacts to the Park. Of the things to do, there’s a plane that kids can clamber over; you can host birthday parties here; check if you can board the train that runs on the weekends; chech out the small ship-in-the-bottle exhibit and just stroll around absorbing the atmosphere. If you’re lucky, you might catch the autor Lloyd Jones wadering about.
