“Jewel In Masterton's Crown”
Review of Henley Lake

Henley Lake
Ranked #3 of 22 things to do in Masterton
Attraction details
Reviewed July 30, 2013

First as Chairman of Henley Trust 2003 working in partnership with Masterton District Council to develop and enhance Henley Lake and wetlands, I must declare my bias. This artificial lake was created on 34 hectares of poor farmland on the edge of Masterton in 1983 due to the vision of Rotarians back in the 1930,s. It is a work in progress. Home to 57 species of birds, Has 7km of walking tracks and numerous native and exotic plantings. Please visit our website henleytrust,org.nz

A relaxing place for a picnic/bbq - or a walk/run around the lake plus an area to walk your dog. Great views of the Tararua Ranges.Recommend calling here

This is a great facility developed in what was a virtual wasteland. Walkers love the variety of trails, as do the dogs!! This artificial lake provides a welcome interlude in a busy schedule. No boats and no swimming - so the ducks and geese have exclusive rights to the water - but you may get to see some model boats sailing. Take the time out for this

Henley lake provides a great place for a walk - well prepared paths suitable for all weathers, lots of birds in the lake and different views all round.

The fitness circuit adds some interest (well, the simpler pieces do) and you can follow the river from the lake back to QE Park in. masterton.

Several events happen at the lake - especially dragon boat racing and the balloon event (algae permitting).

Definitely worth a visit
