My husband and I took our kids, age 8, 6 and 1 to Matakana Country Park today and had an awesome time. We were there from for 3 - 4 hours playing on the playground and admiring the animals. I got a coffee from the cafe, which was nice, and we liked looking in the craft shop.
This is our second visit here so we decided to try the mini train rides, which were $4 per person aged 1 and over. The driver was great with the kids and made it a real experience.
We took a picnic lunch and ate it under the trees near the playground.
Lots of free parking, clean toilets, a really nice spot. Kids are asking to come again next year.
