A beautiful reserve. Ideal for families and picnics. Duck pond but no feeding them. Did a walk up to the waterfall, stunning, peaceful and relaxing. Put our feet in the water where the waterfall is. Cold but grounding. Had tingling, toasty warm feet afterwards. Different walks in this reserve, so will return another day to try another track. Have been... More

A picturesque walk within easy access from Wellington or the Hutt Valley. Adequate parking available and shirt walks are family oriented.

A beautiful area to walk and take in the native flora & fauna. Provides a good perspective of the local bush, coupled with the history of the previous use of the area. Take a walk at least to the waterfall.

When I came here for the first time, I wondered why I had never come before! On a nice day, it's great to come here for walks or a picnic. There's a weta cave (for the brave!), a waterfall walk, lake with swans and ducks, a waterwheel, and also several different signs with history about the area. There are several... More

Percy's Scenic Reserve is a lovely place to have a picnic. It has a lovely lawn area, lake with swans and ducks and a lovely bush area, which meanders up the hill. There are lots of little private areas with flowers going off from the main area.l You just have to walk over the many bridges. It also has a... More

There are pretty garden areas and areas for picnics and walking tracks through the bush to a waterfall and it is so peaceful. - Just perfect for a day out with kids. You can play foodball on the lawns or just show the kids the beautiful nature.

We take our very elderly friends for a picnic afternoon tea to the Percy Reserve on a beautiful day. Seats for the oldies in the shade, gentle walks for zimmerframes and shufflers, ducks to feed, beautfiul plantings to admire. Enough open space too for our little ones to let off steam. We play hide and seek with them and they... More

Percys Reserve caters to visitors who just want a tranquil walk around the bush areas, or to feed the ducks. We have attended two weddings there and they were just fabulous with the gorgeous surroundings and the birdsong in the background.

Percy's Reserve has to be one of those best kept secrets in Lower Hutt that people love but don't tell anyone in case it gets too popular and crowded. You can walk to it from Petone Train Station in about 10 minutes by crossing the pedestrian bridge over the tracks and the State Highway. There are pretty garden areas and... More
