With a distinctly rural feel, Puketapu Park might be a bit off the track but it is worth the look in! Link up with some of the District’s I-way tracks and cycle to the park if you please, or take the car and drive by the Puketapu store, school and pub on the way.
With a modern children’s playground, Puketapu Park has a range of play equipment including a large tandem flying fox, a four person see-saw and a spinning Roktopus tyre swing.
The park has a free to use BBQ, picnic tables and toilet facilities as well as a large open grassed area and cricket pitch. The reserve is located along the Tutaekuri River and is a permitted overnight parking site for verified self-contained vehicles.
