This is a lovely open park to visit and for children to play in. Only thing to be aware of is that this is also a dog park and one where dogs are allowed to run free.

It's actually a dogs park, a special assigned area as "dogs exercise area". It looks funny that we walk without a dog with us. All the people we meet has their dog or dogs with them. We still enjoy our walk anyway. The park has...More

Fastastic lovely large trees are throughout the park along with fields of daffodils swaying in the breeze. Pathways to walk and areas to see the Waikato river.

Visited this park regularly for a few years until we moved away from Hamilton. Easy access to river. Parking available from two entries plus off the road. Dogs off lead. Fabulous space. Seats set under trees around the loop walk. Occasionally doggie bags available but...More

Our dog loves the freedom and ability to run freely and safely. There's the Waikato River access that a lot of dogs enjoy, or you can just walk around the circuit and let your dog play with the other visitors. This park is well kept,...More

Great place to take the dogs to have a walk, swim and socialise with the other dogs off the lead. Gravel pathways and heaps of grass so play on

Beautiful walking tracks along the river through bush and then a big park where we can lay with our brand doggie off his leash.

Took my dog for the first time a few weeks ago, was a "nervous first timer" and kept dog on lease but by following week, she was off-lease running around and enjoying the company of other dogs.

Mr Day could have sold his land to property developers but instead he gifted it to Hamilton for all dogs and their humans to enjoy. It's a glorious bit of riverside land where dogs and their owners can run off the leash.

I visited Day's Park as part of the Beneful Bark in the Park events. Day's park is a large grassy park where dogs can be off the leash and exercise. There is river access so dogs can swim in the river. If you are not...More
