This is a nice park, well kept with good space for family picnics, playgrounds, swimming and general relaxation. The Khandallah Pool is at the entrance (it's patrolled by swimming life guards), along with a good café (nice food and good coffee), then just follow the path into the Park itself. Do take an extra layer (cardigan or sweatshirt) as when... More

A pleasant reserve with a stream and grassy area for games or picnics, plus a small kids playground. The main reason for coming here is to access Mount Kaukau which can be done using various paths leading up from the bottom. Taking the main path directly ahead leads through the bush alongside the stream and beneath the tall trees. This... More

The pool is seasonal only and the kids love the little flying fox. The play equipment is fairly basic for such a large space. Awesome walking if your up for some exercise and a taste of New Zealand bush.

There isn't allot to do at the park itself, but it is a great gateway to get up Mount Kaukau from. It is also a nice place if you want to have a family picnic, and the summer outdoor pool is very popular. I mainly just run through it, as I head down from the top of Kaukau.

Walk up through the bush and admire the view over Wellington from Mt Kaukau. Walk across to Clarke Street and enjoy a peaceful stroll through the bush there. Small kids will have fun in the little playground (don't forget the swings by the path into the bush!) or playing in the stream. There is a nice cafe with outdoor seating,... More
