Great tracks for running

Participated in the Mothers Day Fun Run through Turnbull Thompson Park. Great for a run and up onto the Waihopi River bank. You can do a 5km circuit. Plenty of parking.

Coming from Auckland, I have high standards for parks and gardens, and this garden was really well preserved and look after. you can wander around for hours and there will still be corners to explore!

It is certainly an impressive and large park, but as a tourist attraction it is a little plain. It is a functional park, with rugby grounds and sports enclosures, along... More
