What happens in the reserve?
The reserve was developed as an urban woodlot, and now caters for predominately passive recreation.
The reserve remains a popular off leash dog walking area and is also part of the Rotorua Walkway network. The reserve offers plenty of safe “free play” areas for children and their families, absorbing minor community development like bike jumps with ease.
There are internal paths for pedestrians and horses (the latter rarely if ever seen), with limited emergency access for vehicles. The gully acts as a storm water drain in major wet weather events, with a debris trap at the northern end.
People really do use this reserve in a variety of ways. To help us understand more fully how it is used and the values you hold for Tihi Rd Reserve please take 3 minutes and complete the survey,
