This wonderful spot is not far from the town of Tapanui. Manicured lawns spill down to the river's edge framed by forest.

Whether you stop for a picnic or want to indulge in a spot of daydreaming, it is a tranquil spot to stop.

A little further off the beaten track is Park Hill Reserve, near Heriot. You can lounge on the lawn and relax by the river.
