Centennial Drive is a stunning botanical park that winds its way through the Matamata town centre. The drive was formed in the early 1900's when the settlement of Matamata was divided into sections, leaving a 40 metre wide plantation reserve - over time this reserve was planted and developed into Centennial Drive. The drive is now managed and maintained by a committee of volunteers with contributions from Council.
The drive is a stunning short walk, with lots of great spots to stop and picnic, or simply wander through and admire the range of features including gardens, a water feature and a variety of trees from all around the world. Note that as Centennial Drive is a park, there is no formed track or walking path - people generally walk along the road or grass.
Centennial Drive can be accessed either from Broadway or Tainui Street,
