There are lots of opportunities to take advantage of the great outdoors in Tauranga.

The city’s premier parks include Memorial Park, Mauao, McLaren Falls Park and Yatton Park. Tauraga City Council aims to have a playground within 500m of every residential home in Tauranga City.

There is also a huge range of walkways and cycleways throughout the city. Highlights include the Mauao base track, Waikareao Estuary, Gordon Carmichael Reserve and Waioraka Reserve.
