The Waiatarua Reserve is the ideal place if you love to be surrounded by nature. Pack a small picnic to spend an afternoon here or take a walk through the open spaces. The reserve also has viewing platforms, a skate park, a basketball court and a modern playground.
The wetland was previously a part of a fresh-water lake that was cut-off by lava eruptions. Today, the place offers a gorgeous lush-green space where you can feel a lot more closer to nature and all its goodness!

Waiatarua Reserve Reviews & Ratings
Awesome place to go walking, running, or to take the dogs for a run! Dogs are pretty much off leash all the time but that’s because the park is so huge there’s enough space for everyone. Truly a really nice place - but watch out for the ponds, don’t let your dog jump in as one dog has drowned recently.
Beautiful wetland areas developed over the last year with wide gravel paths, large grass areas, native planting, bridges and options for different routes to walk or run. Some areas are designated off-lead for dogs, although dog-owners are asked to keep their dogs out of the specific wetland areas where there is a multitude of bird species protected and enjoying living on the ponds and creeks.
Beautiful little park around a spring. Has just the right amount of "traffic" going through, plenty of sunny spots to have a picnic with the family. Great from spring-autumn.
Mostly it's a great place to walk dogs off leash but at certain times they don't look after the paths. Especially in winter when the paths are covered with water.
Always enjoy taking Pax walking although some overgrowth could be cut back.
