“A Great Walk”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

This man made lake with all its landscaping and large trees, lime pathways and views of bird life, the Tararuas and the sound of the river, makes a walk with or without family, a special experience. There are many options of which track and distance to choose; the map at the entrance on Te Ore Ore road indicates these clearly.
Children will love biking along the back track alongside the river particularly, as there are kid friendly challenges along the way.
The older walkers are able to take the shortest route around the lake, in safety, on a level pathway. Wheelchairs may cope with this option. White swans, ducks and even remote controlled speed boats add interest to this location. A viewing tower in the wetlands area also adds perspective to the whole area. Dog walkers, please remember to keep dogs on a lead, especially during the bird breeding season, as indicated.

“feeding birds”
Reviewed March 14, 2014

awesome place for children: feeding birds at Lake Henley is one of our favorite activity. All ducks and swans come very close and they are really friendly, and there are hundreds of them. The scenery is beautiful too.

“Fantastic place for dog walking”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

It is really good to have a place where dogs are not only allowed but encouraged!
Great walking tracks around the lake and into the wooded areas. Dogs are allowed off lead which is another plus.
A great amenity for the Wairarapa.

“well worth a visit”
Reviewed January 22, 2014

Wildlife and remote controlled boats on the water and many ages watching, strolling, and enjoying the setting. Great to relax or explore. Well worth a visit.
