This historic quarry site has been restored with the support of a passionate group of residents, the Pit Park People.
This hidden gem of a park is a brilliant place to walk your dog off-leash.
This large open space is part of Palmerston North's recreation hub.
Come play a game of netball or tennis at this great facility.
Walkways meander through restoration plantings, alongside wetlands and across the open spaces to provide a diversity of environments to enjoy on your walk. The site formerly provided clay for brick manufacture at the nearby Hoffman Kiln and subsequently hardfill for construction of the airport runway.
There are great views into the Pit from the adjacent Skoglund Park sportfields.
