On-leash | Easy | Garden & Park | Good for hot days

Keirunga Gardens, situated in Havelock North, boasts a sprawling 17 hectares of meticulously designed formal gardens and expansive parklands. This multifaceted park is a true asset to the community, featuring a generous open area that’s perfect for picnicking and a dedicated children’s playground.

Within the garden’s well-kept grounds lies the historic Keirunga Homestead and the Keirunga Gardens Arts & Crafts Society, providing valuable community resources for arts and crafts enthusiasts throughout the Hastings District.

Adjacent to Tanner Street and lower Pufflett Road, you’ll discover a spacious picnic spot, a charming natural woodland section, and an entrance to the park known as ‘Crabapple Walk.’ Along the western edge of the gardens, following the waterway, meanders Arthurs Path—an informal walking trail enveloped by a serene woodland of venerable oak trees.

Adding to its allure, Keirunga Gardens features the Keirunga Park Railway, an 846-meter miniature train track that winds its way through the park, complete with tunnels and bridges. This railway promises delightful family outings and holds enduring popularity with the younger generation. For comprehensive details about the railway, including photos, pricing, and operating hours, visit the Havelock North Live Steamers website at www.keirungaparkrailway.org.nz.

Keirunga Gardens is open to fur babies, provided they remain leashed unless within the designated ‘off-lead/exercise’ zone, located at the southern boundary walkway of Keirunga Gardens along Tanner Street.
