About this park
Haruatai Park is a destination playground in Ōtaki. Spread across nearly nine hectares of land, Haruatai Park is home to Ōtaki Pools, Ōtaki splash pad, Haruatai Playground and Haruatai sports fields.
As you enter the park there's a keyhole basketball court, picnic tables with shade sails, and one of Kāpiti's newest playgrounds. The playground is home to Kāpiti's tallest swing and other super fun equipment for all ages and abilities. There are toilets next to the playground making this a great place for an all day outing.
Haruatai Park is home to the Ōtaki Lions Pump Track. The pump track is a continuous loop of 'berms' and 'rollers that is designed to be ridden without pedalling. Riders shift their weight to create momentum and "pump" around that track.
The sports fields are used for twilight football and cricket in the summer and football in the winter. There are tennis courts available for public use. Next to the field car park you'll find exercise equipment which is free to use - no gym membership required!
The park is also home to Ōtaki Montessori Preschool, Ōtaki Scouts and Ōtaki Playgroup.
