This reserve was gifted to the city by George Parr and was done for sick and recovering children to come to play and relax together.
The large reserve is a wonderful place to have a picnic or take the family for a walk. It is closely linked to the Waikato River and Memorial Park as well as the River Walk south toward Hamilton Gardens. A Children’s Garden has been developed at the park along with the extension of the water feature, interactive native bird sculptures and a small amphitheatre and playhouse.
Kids (and adults) love going to the reserve on sunny days and play their hearts out.
