Our friendly family park boasts great facilities and activities including an outdoor swimming pool, a games room, a jumping pillow, a bouncy castle, two adventure playgrounds, a trampoline, petanque, aviary, slackline, basketball hoop, volleyball net, dining and BBQ areas.

To take the fun further you can hire trikes to ride around the park, kayaks to take out onto the Whanganui River and mountain bikes to race through the local mountain bike tracks.
