Recreation

Parks, Reserves, Swimming Pools

We have a great network of parks, esplanade reserves and swimming pools for people to get out and enjoy.

There are 66 parks and 107 parcels of esplanade reserves in the Timaru District covering an area of 588 hectares. The parks offer a wide variety of pursuits from children's playgrounds, war memorials, sports grounds, cycling and walking tracks, attractive planted areas, dog exercise areas and natural areas of native plants and wildlife habitats.

The swimming pools in the district offer a fantastic range of facilities from our flagship Caroline Bay Trust Aoraki Centre, in Timaru, to the seasonal pools at Geraldine, Pleasant Point and Temuka.
