Parks and Recreation

From quiet relaxation to energetic activity there's something for everyone. Choose from the hills, coast, forests, waterways or local urban parks - whatever suits your interests.

Parks are part of your community and are free for everyone to use.

 All parks and reserves on the Kāpiti Coast are looked after by Council staff.



Park Search
