Esk River at Eskdale Park

Esk River is located along the Napier Taupo highway in the Esk Valley 15min drive from Napier.  The river is popular in summer for swimming, and is next to a public domain with toilet facilities maintained by Hastings District Council and near a commercial holiday park.  

 

The surrounding land use is predominantly sheep/beef farming with some orchards and forestry.  

Elevated bacteria levels are generally observed after heavy and prolonged rainfall, when surface water runoff from adjacent farmland drains into the river.
