Riverside Recreation Reserve
A picturesque wetland reserve, made up of 3 heavily planted large ponds and surrounded by cycling/walking tracks has been created in Riverside Reserve. This area is already home to numerous fauna and flora with a few local sculptures tastefully arranged around the water's edge. The wetlands provide an interesting excursion for young children to feed the birdlife, and a place to relax and take in the scenery. Boat access close by to the Clutha River and Lake Wanaka are perfect for water sports and fishing. There is also plenty of open space to take the family for a picnic and for children to run around safely in view. This is also an extremely popular location for both beginner and experienced rock climbers, with a range of places to climb at different difficulty levels and fantastic views.
