McGregor Park
 

McGregor Park is a flat grassed area where campervans can stay. It has a lovely native bush walk beside the famous Wairio stream. You will hear many native birds in song in this peaceful conservation area. Behind the park is a training track for horses.

The McGregor Family of Mount Linton donated this 80 ha park in the 1950s. Over many years it has catered for a wide range of local recreational and social pursuits.

McGregor Park was the site of theNightcaps Coal Company's first mine in 1880.

Not surprisingly, the area's first swimming pool, built on site in the 1930s by damming the Wairio stream, had a bed of coal!

An award-winning community planting programme of native trees and plants is gradually being established.
