Where: Mail Road, Harrogate

This is definitely one to check out in winter for that added adventure! Opened in mid 2021, this hidden gem in the heart of Harrogate has been transformed thanks to a $140k investment from Council.

In response to the township plan and bushfire recovery efforts, the Harrogate Recreational Reserve has received a much needed facelift. Upgrades include a modern shelter housing a new barbecue, undercover seating and power, walking tracks, signage, carved timber seating and updated public toilets. The new playground equipment looks great, with a flying fox, swings and enough equipment to make the trek worth while. We think this is a fantastic tucked away spot, which is great for those days exploring the hills.

The adventure starts with a low water crossing at its entrance (we love this!!). Please take care crossing the winter creek, either in your wellies or inside your car.
