A delightful find. This quarry converted to a park has historical signage, easy walk tracks, and from the top the views of the Southern Alps are spectacular. Highly recommended. Just watch out for the doggie poo. Owners need to clean up after their mutts.

Although the promised "sister city" garden complex has't eventuated due to the EQs, the extensive plantings of cherry trees are well worth a visit in September. Good picnic facilities, bookable by groups and plenty of space for dogs & runners. I always enjoy the short...More
