Radcliffe Road reserve

Visit

Access

The reserve is located at 303 Radcliffe Road in Marshlands.

There is on-site and street car parking available.

Dogs

Dogs must be leashed in the reserve at all times in order to protect native wildlife.

Features

The reserve at 303 Radcliffe Road was once farmland but has been transformed into eight hectares of a beautiful native forest and natural waterways. 

Various habitats for wildlife such as lizards, birds and fish have been incorporated into the design, and former farm sheds converted into an open-air classroom for people to come and learn about waterways health and local biodiversity.

A 2km walking track meanders through the reserve and into the Māori roanga (medicinal) gardens before looping back to the car park.

Get involved

Help The Styx Living Laboratory Trust to monitor waterway health and the wildlife in it.
