|Abstract||Site of one of the last battles between Maori and early
colonial forces in the region, Battle Hill Farm Forest
Park blends traditional hill country farming, forestry
and environmental restoration. With its farm setting,
native bush reserve and panoramic views, Battle Hill
provides a great opportunity to enjoy the open spaces
of rural Wellington. The 500 hectares of Battle Hill are
a mix of flat, rolling and steeper hill country, making it
a haven for walking, horse riding, mountain biking,
camping and picnicking. Ideal for open-air events, the
park is very popular with community and sports clubs.
School groups frequently visit, with the Ken Gray
Education Centre an ideal base for their visit.
