… is the name of a nearby park we finally went walking in this afternoon.
It’s mostly made up of undeveloped land straddling some small creeks. There are nice boardwalk trails throughout the park because they don’t want people exploring the wild parts. Besides erosion and whatever hazards come from steep hills, the main worry is Kauri Dieback disease, which is steadily killing the 1-2% of native Kauri trees that weren’t logged or built over. Here’s a medium size one… the giants get really big.
As we got down to the coast, things opened up into marshland, and there was even a pool with eels.
I love these forest oases, have done since I first got here.
