Ashley Picnic Ground

Waimakariri Gardens

The Ashley Picnic Ground is a 1.5 hectares reserve located approximately half a kilometre north of Rangiora on the southern bank of the Ashley/Rakahuri River.  Its proximity to the township makes it a popular spot in summer with Rangiora residents and other visitors.

Extensive tree and native shrub planting has been carried out on the site over the past few years resulting in an attractive environment for people to picnic.  An electric BBQ is provided on the site as well as toilets and picnic tables.

Each year a safe swimming hole is dug in the Ashley/Rakahuri River adjacent to the picnic ground and this has proven to be very popular.

A substantial BMX track is located on the eastern boundary of the reserve and is open to members of the public.

The start of the Mike Kean Walkway is to the east just over the northern stop bank of the reserve and goes for approximately 1 kilometre to the railway bridge.

A town information kiosk has been located just outside the main entrance to the reserve.
