Ariki Drive Recreational Reserve is right in the heart of Snells Beach, with two large grassy areas both sides of the main road, one of the more popular boat ramps, a public toilet and a set of swings.
All along Ariki Reserve you will find Pohutukawa trees lining the sea shore, along with a few scattered park benches.
Snells Beach is very tidal, and this creates great swimming during high tides for longer periods of the year as the water is warmer.
Dog exercise information : . Please check for signage at the park / beach.
