COVID-19 update on parks and tracks

The Government is asking for everyone to stay at home. Their advice is that you can go for a walk or exercise outdoors for a short time, but to stick to simple walks or exercise spots close to home. 

If using one of our parks, always stay two metres away from anyone not in your household. If you take your dog, please keep it on a leash at all times to help avoid contact with other dogs. Take your dog poo home and dispose of it in your red bin.

Where there are gates and latches in parks, please avoid using your hands to open and close them. If gates are off their hinges or left open, please leave them as you find them.

Cemeteries are open for pedestrian access only. 

The following are closed:

  • Public toilets.
  • Playgrounds, play equipment or exercise equipment in parks.
  • The Botanic Gardens.
  • Car parks within parks.
  • Visitor and information centres.
  • The Spencer Park animal area and fenced dog parks.

Radcliffe Road reserve

Visit

Access

The reserve is located at 303 Radcliffe Road in Marshlands.

There is on-site and street car parking available.

Dogs

Dogs must be leashed in the reserve at all times in order to protect native wildlife.

Features

The reserve at 303 Radcliffe Road was once farmland but has been transformed into eight hectares of a beautiful native forest and natural waterways. 

Various habitats for wildlife such as lizards, birds and fish have been incorporated into the design, and former farm sheds converted into an open-air classroom for people to come and learn about waterways health and local biodiversity.

A 2km walking track meanders through the reserve and into the Māori roanga (medicinal) gardens before looping back to the car park.
