Talbot Street Reserve is located on the north-east boundary of the City’s residential area.
Pedestrian access into Talbot Street Reserve is from Talbot Street (opposite Fern and Rowan Streets), via Salford School Grounds, Roseburn Place and Racecourse Road.
Vehicles (other than maintenance vehicles) are not permitted on this reserve.
The Waihopai Walkway (located along the stop banks) presents excellent opportunities for access into the reserve, providing a linked pathway with Salford Street and Talbot Street.
The playground is provided on Talbot Street frontage.
Some of the land is undulating and includes a section of the original Waihopai River bed.
The reserve provides a recreational link between residential dwellings to the south and the Waihopai Walkway to the north. Multiuse walk/cycle ways are used by cyclists and pedestrians to pass through the reserve
