Pakeke Park

This park is located off Studholme Street, adjacent to the railway overbridge in south western Morrinsville. 

The site slopes towards a small stream, and is planted with native plants.  A path leads through the grassed areas of the reserve from Studholme to Lorne Streets.

History

The Keep Morrinsville Beautiful organisation was involved with beautifying the land and suggested that the land needed some attention. The Pakeke Lions Club was approached and took over the beautification of the area.  After clearing the vegetation and contouring the land, it was planted out with native trees and grassed.
