Recently upgraded, this playground is nice and close to home - and has a flying fox which is popular with my crew. If you want to walk there it’s 2km each way - there’s a track through from Rowling Place to Shelley Street.

A great place for a family picnic, Gudex Memorial Park (also known as Sanatorium Hill) is located adjacent to the Maungakawa Scenic Reserve and is a 15-min drive or 9 km from Cambridge. Look out for tūī and kererū (wood pigeon) when trees are in bloom or fruiting. Maungakawa Loop Track (30 min/1.2 km) A 30 minute loop walk (with lots pf stairs!) that starts at the end of the open lawn area passes through attractive forest with some interesting artefacts. The walk loops back around the lawn picnic area to your starting point.
