The Waiwhakaiho River drains an extensively developed farmland catchment and flows through two kilometres of urban New Plymouth before reaching this popular domain and recreational area, which is nearly 4 km from the sea.
It is a popular site for swimming, walking or picnicking on the banks of the river.
For all sites, the Council advises:
Avoid for three days after heavy rain, if the river is high, or if you cannot see the bottom clearly.
