  • this park is dog friendly (must be on leash) and we spent several hours wandering the various paths and gardens. There were a few volunteers on site who shared the history of the park. Well worth a vi...  more »
  • From a distance it looks like a normal slope. But when you walk along the paths, the magnificent panorama before you, flowering shrubs, flowers, sculpture. In this park you can walk the whole day!

  • Absolutely beautiful park. Very green. Be sure to check out the side trails along the main path. And also make the effort to see the waterfall.  more »

  • The old rock quarry is a locally loved garden park and outside art exhibition – it’s wildly character has a real community feel ran by local volunteers having made this their life’s project. The quarry terraces are a must walk, huge vistas, plenty of areas to relax & plenty of nature. Large car-park, well informed maps, coin donation.
  • Awesome place to visit and relax, some nice walks in the native forest, streams and waterfalls around. A few things to play with and see while you walk around. Great picnic areas all over.
  • Great place to wander around ... but needs some continuing work on tracks & facilities.
  • Nice place to visit. Free. Dog friendly. The volunteers are friendly and helpful. This is a must see place.
  • Enjoyable and peaceful. Really really top effort by the people who created this. Lovely for the children to run around and the views are stunning. You really are with nature here. We had a pram. Some of the tracks you can push the pram along (we only saw that part) and other areas you cannot. Takes about 15-20 min from Tauranga. Take a packed lunch and enjoy. Ample parking once you get there but if you care for your car you will need to hose it off from the fine dust afterwards.
