Parks and reserves

Although most urban parks and reserves around Hastings are now safe and open, there are a few across the district that remain closed or partially closed, these include:

  • Tauroa Reserve – The upper-south end remains CLOSED due to dangerous trees and lack of bridges. Lower Tauroa Reserve is OPEN as is the Tauroa Boardwalk.
  • Tainui Reserve – Hikanui Drive cul de sac entrance, the mountain bike trail, and lower-south end are CLOSED due to slips and trail instability. Lower Tainui Reserve is OPEN.
  • Karituwhenua Stream walkway in Kingsgate Reserve - The gully track from Te Mata Road to Reeve Drive entrance is CLOSED. The upper track from Te Mata Road through reserve is OPEN.
  • Maraetotara Falls - Toilets and carpark available and waterfall is accessible, however, trail along stream is washed out or blocked in some places (not continuous).
  • Puketapu Park – OPEN. Further restoration works including the cricket pitch and archery area will follow in 2024.
