  • I got to see this place on my first weekend in New Zealand and it's just breathtaking. It's one of the most beautiful place I've been. 
  • 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

  • We did the 1 hour return walk overseeing the stream below us and back. Good for weekends, relaxing jog/run or just lazing out with family on a sunny day!
  • Gorgeous walks through pristine native forest, camping, swimming holes, what's not to love?
  • Best park in NZ. Great location. Great price. Facilities are clean. With showers this place would be off the hook.
