Great place for family walk - plenty of chickens for kids to feed. Highly recommended as doesn't take too long to wander round with young kids.

But probably best to avoid if its been pouring down because it was a bit muddy. Great for dog walking, or even just a walk on your own, to get away from the business of life as it is very quite and peaceful there.

Nice walk, out in the country. Pretty quiet and don't think it is very well known so good to not be bothered by other people! Lots of nice fruit trees also

A great place to walk, enjoy nature and even get non fluoridated water to drink up at the drinking tap.

We love the serene atmosphere here and the circuit around the place is an easy short walk. Ideal as an activity before or after coffee with friends or family. The colourful roosters, hens, chicks and ducklings wandering about are delightful

I was taken here by my Uncle and Aunt who have lived here for 20+ years, so I also got a free history lesson about the place. Diverse range of trees, nice spot for a walkabout, or a picnic. No entry fee either.

Hi not sure, it is run by the council so I would ask them. Would get great shots at spring and fall due to the colours. There is stock around so it may be no. Cheers

I'm not certain, but if you call Hamilton City Council they will be able to tell you.
