Morrinsville River Walk

This pleasant River walk begins from Holmwood Park housing subdivision, meandering along the river side. The walk is mostly flat making it suitable for most walkers.

Starting at the Morrinsville Recreation Grounds (Avenue Road South entrance), this pleasant walk follows the river along the rear of the recreational grounds, through stands of mature trees. The walk features a stand of native Totara trees (identified as significant in the Matamata-Piako District Plan) - these can be found near the track in the south east corner of the recreation ground. This short walk is great for the whole family, with loads to explore including a small waterfall. The Morrinsville Recreation Ground is a perfect place to spread out a picnic blanket and relax after your walk.
