Waikato District Council Article: Reserve Opening

Tamahere Reserve, 34 Tauwhare Road

https://www.tamaherewalkways.org/

It all began with a desire to rehabilitate the Tamahere Reserve, a 4.6ha block of land owned by the Waikato District Council. The land has remained neglected for over 40 years with many mature and unpruned pine trees adding to the neglected state. The reserve has a significant history dating back to the 1860’s and is a remnant of the Kahikatea swamp forests dating from many years previously. With the installation of boardwalks the visitor is able to wander through the gully and observe and enjoy the ecological work. Other walking pathways are under construction but can be used with care.
