Flaxmere Park is home to one of Hastings premier playgrounds. It also has sports fields, marked for football in the winter and cricket in the summer (see field maps below), a large number of mature shade-giving trees, and a pond.
The fenced playground includes swings, climbing frames, slides, a gyroscope and splash pad. There are also picnic tables and a free-to-use community barbecue.
The park has adult exercise equipment placed along a walking and cycling track around the park, ki-o-rahi field and nine-hole disc golf circuit.
The park is a popular venue for large community events and to enable performances to be held there is a concrete pad stage with electricity points.
Public toilets: Yes; closed at night (and sports ground toilets open during organised sporting events only)
The entrances to the park are off Henderson Rd, Wilson Rd and Flaxmere Ave.
Maintenance and development programmes for this reserve are governed by the Flaxmere Park Reserve Management Plan.
