Linklater Reserve

This is one of our favourites to visit! Jump on the city's longest dual flying fox, check out the log and tyre scramble, or go play in the new Cessna 421 plane that we airlifted into the reserve last August.

More interested in getting some exercise in or get rid of your dog's zoomies? Journey along the 3km pathway network to explore this developing reserve, or go to the dog agility course so Fido can burn off some energy.

This reserve is also popular with frisbee golf enthusiasts, plane aficionados, and mountain bikers searching for a bike pump track.

This is a reserve that really has something for everyone!

Join the Woodroofe whānau as they share what they love about their favourite Palmy park.


Walkways, toilets, dog agility course, dog wash and drinking bowl, picnic tables, bike pump track and jumps, swing bridge, flying fox, play equipment.

Dogs welcome

With the exception of the children's play areas, this reserve is a dog exercise area, where you can walk your dog off-leash (except during lockdown, sorry!).
