  • The park was beautiful, but the Rivendell part was a disappointment
  • Very spacious, good for picnics with a large number of people. However, there aren't many tables and the available tables are placed far away from each other. The Riverdell is also located here
  • Really nice for a sunny day. You will be able to discover one of the film set Location for Rivendell in The Lord of the rings movies.
  • Fantastic park with expansive native bush ~45 minutes from Wellington city.
  • Visit Rivendell! Lots of information and such on the sets and film location. A beautiful park for a walk and a picnic. Offers camping as well.
