Parks and recreation

The Kāpiti Coast's parks and reserves offer many opportunities for recreation in different landscapes and settings.

From quiet relaxation to energetic activity there's something for everyone.  You can choose from the hills, coast, forests, waterways or local urban parks to meet your skills and interests.

Parks are part of the community and are free for everyone to use.
