Tilbury Reserve

Named after local pioneering identity, Harry Tilbury, a drover who lived in a cottage that used to be sited on the reserve, Tilbury Reserve is a flat grass area on Orchard West Rd (and opposite Kaihere Rd), adjacent to the Piako River in Ngatea.

Located on the reserve is the Millennium Bridge, a half scale working model of the old Piako River Bridge centre span.  The inclusion of a couple of picnic tables completes this spot as a great place to stop, stretch your legs and read about the history of the bridge.

Constructed in 2002 using funds raised by the community it is a reminder of the earlier importance of river travel to the Plains area.

Dudding Reserve

On the corner of Paul’s Drive, Ngatea, and State Highway 2, this reserve is dedicated to Dave Dudding in recognition of his services to land drainage in the area. It sports picnic tables, a picnic shelter built by the local Lions Club, an information board listing Plains places of interest, and is an ideal place to take a break from shopping in the middle of the town’s CBD.
