This is a really nice quiet place to spend some time if you are in Te Anau, it has lake Henry which had stunning reflactions when I went and is just a generally lovely place to wonder around.

Big park in the centre of a lovely location. Had a lovely stroll round parts of it while on a short stop over and really enjoyed the experience. This is a beautiful park with mature trees and lots to do and see.

We took a hour walk in this park and really enjoyed the scenery, especially the views of the lake. The paths are nice and wide and in great condition. It is a nice way to wind down after a day of driving.
