Lovely place to walk around
Jan 2021 • Friends
A bit of a hidden gem out of Tauranga that I hadn't heard of until it was recommended to me. Beautiful gardens for enthusiasts and a great place to get your steps up even if you're not that much into plants. Walk high enough and you get a great view too.

What a great place
Oct 2020 • Family
Lovely surprise. First thing stepping out of the car was the birds songs - so many! They must love this peaceful place.
With the endless different paths you can easily spend a good few hours with the family ( which we did) including young kids and teenagers. Well taken care of, so much creativity with the plants and the art. We loved treasure hunting ( using the info pamphlet) for the numerous sculptures ending with the wonderful dragon.
Different areas of different types of plants from various area in the world.
You can feel this park is loved by those taking care of it.

Wonderful garden to explore
Aug 2020 • Family
An absolute delight to wander around. Only had time to do the main track in an anti clockwise direction. Was quite steep in places carrying a 10 month old in my front carrier but was rewarded with stunning views over Tauranga. My 3.5yo had a bit of fun in the musical garden. The cairn tribute to Sir Edmund Hillary was also lovely. Well done to the volunteers who do an amazing job.

Amazing spot with some incredible views
May 2020
With views over most of Tauranga and looking out over Mt Maunganui this is a definite must visit. Some lovely walks that are really quirky and some beautiful gardens from around the world. Picnic spots with tables all over the place make this the perfect stop for a meal and an adventure. Well done to the private individuals that donate their time to keep the place maintained and looked after. A lovely place to spend some time reflecting and relaxing.

Favourite Local park
May 2020 • Family
We are blessed enough to live in walking/biking distance to quarry park. During the covid lockdown we have benefited from the hard work the quarry volunteers/lions group have done over the years to provide an amazing fun filled walk and park environment.

The frog pond, cactus garden, butterfly enclosure, Brian’s Wall to name a few are amazing.

The tracks are well maintained so our 3,7,9 year can walk up and around with relative ease (slower pace with younger children) but a great doable family workout with stunning views of Tauranga.

Loved the bathroom facilities remained open and clean (no doubt a local volunteer). Favourite place and hope to pay it forward in the future.

Lovely walk around this disused quarry. The Friends have done a great job. Interesting planting. Great butterfly garden. Stunning views at the top of the walk. Good picnic facilities. Recommended

A walk in the park
Jan 2020
This was a bit of a surprise. There were several different walking paths taking us to different style gardens and views. At various times of the year this place would be a beautiful array of flowering plants, however for us the best area was the bromeliads as it was the heart of summer and most flowers had passed their best. Potentially there will be a great orchid area when the time is right, and also the roses. The views are beautiful as it is quite high up overlooking Mt Maunganui. Well worth a wander which could last for half an hour or several hours depending on you. There is a donation box to help run the place.
