  • A great park on the outskirts of Hamilton -Pro, A great selection of flora and walking trails that have been carefully laid out, Soooo many chickens! and of other birds. -Cons, Hard to get to without a car, 50 min cycle from Hamilton CBD, also closes around sunset. Be careful of your car being locked in.
  • Yep it is a great walk, if bloody people would read the sign. ALL DOGS MUST BE ON A LEAD. YOU GUYS ARE JUST RUINING IT FOR EVERYONE ELSE! Hello I don't appreciate those dogs in my dogs face. My dog is not social so do not blame me if your dog gets bit. I don't care if you are locals. Rules apply to everyone. That goes for the push bikes too and picking up dog poo. Push bikes are on the other side of the track.
  • A Great nature walk for families and visitors: This large park was gifted to Hamilton City, It is well maintained with various pathways through different areas of mature native and exotic trees and plants. The park has numerous Lakes which support Ducks and Swans. Visitors are first greeted at the Carpark by numbers of colourful chickens hoping for a treat.The best times to visit are Autumn and Early Summer. Some tracks are not suitable for wheelchairs. Toilets and drinking water provided. Dogs must be onlead.
  • A beautiful walk at any season. Great foe all ages.
  • Great place to take the kids for a walk
