We love Queen Elizabeth Park and we know you do too. We want to show it off and it’s a great chance to come and experience something new in the park! Grab a ‘Parksport’ and get stamps at all the sites you explore. Queen Elizabeth Park has plenty of space to enjoy swimming, fishing, walking, cycling, horseriding and picnics. Visit the Kapiti Stables; see the aero modellers annual rally; take part in a scavenger hunt, meet native fish, go on a nature tour and more! The park is steeped in history including pa sites at Whareroa and Wainui beaches and evidence of the 20,000 strong US marine camps from World War II The Tramway Museum is situated near the MacKays Crossing entrance, with historic trams running on the 2km line to Whareroa Beach. Plus there will be other events during the day so grab a picnic and come down and visit. Full event information will be at our visitors centre Ramoroa.
