“Best mountain biking trails in Nelson. Lovely well formed tracks with a variety of skill levels. Easy to rent a mountain bike in town. You can walk here too but be careful on the weekends as you’ll end up dodging a lot of cyclists ”

“Ten minutes' walk from town, this 25-hectare park boasts beautiful blooming and scented gardens, a playground, tennis courts, croquet and a nine-hole golf course. It's pretty as a picture when lit up on summer evenings. Five minutes away, on the way to or from town, is the extensive Taylor River Reserve, a lovely place for a stroll.”
