Parks and Reserves
Invercargill has about 150 parks and reserves on over 3000 hectares of land, offering a wide range of venues and facilities catering for a variety of sporting and recreational needs.
Invercargill’s forefathers had the wisdom to set aside large reserves for everyone to enjoy and today the southernmost city in New Zealand is well-known for its parks and gardens. These areas community assets and are free for everyone to use (charges might apply for the use of some parks, sports fields or venues).
