There is a bush walk that starts at the end of Lynn Reserve taking you past the 800 year old Kauri trees and ending at Leigh Reserve which has another children’s playground. The bush walk is not accessible for wheelchairs or buggies due to the stairs and gets muddy in wet weather. If you go on the walking track at night you can sometimes even see the glow worms. Please note that the Lynn Reserve bush walk has been temporarily closed to prevent Kauri dieback disease.
