Parks and playgrounds

With lots of young families in our neighbourhoods we've got plenty of parks to go around - we'd love to see you and the littlies out our way

Maidstone Max Park

Park Street, Maidstone, Upper Hutt

View map

Maidstone Max Park has something for the whole family, including a miniature railway, skate park, flying fox, and tube slide. Parents can relax and watch the kids play from one of the many seated areas or picnic tables, only a few minutes’ walk, drive or bike from the city centre and railway station. The Park also offers a high-octane downhill mountain bike track for intermediate riders. The 1100m track twists down the hill and exits through a mix of regenerating native and established beech forest.

Across the road from one of the most popular swimming beaches in Wellington you'll find Williams Park. Several sports fields give you a chance to kick a ball around or run off some energy and the park backs on to beautiful native bush, great for a wander.
