Sport and Recreation

Council parks and reserves offer a broad range of venues for sport and other recreational needs.

Walking tracks and Mountain Bike trails

Walking tracks include Donovan Park, Thomsons Bush, Seaward Bush, Queens Park, Otatara Scenic Reserve, Bluff Hill Tracks and Sandy Point Tracks

Sandy Point and Bluff also hold some great mountain bike tracks.

If you would prefer some flatter tracks to bike or run along you could look at the Dunns Road walkway/cycleway, Pit Road walkway/cycleway, Oreti walkway/cycleway and the Estuary walkway which links with the Waihopai walkway (managed by Environment Southland).

Check these brochures for details:
