Introduction

Looking for a natural adventure playground in the city? Come to Jubilee Park! Build a stick fort in the forest, ride the tracks on your mountain bike, or explore the rest of the Dunedin Town Belt from here.

Highlights

  • Can you imagine cows living in Jubilee Park? This area was first established as 'Tomlinson's Paddock', named after a man who grazed his cattle here in the 1870s.
  • Bring a frisbee or ball and play a game on the field.
  • The Town Belt is home to silvereye, New Zealand pigeon/kererū and tūī. See how many you can spot among the trees.

Go and explore

Look out for the Guardian Post when you get there. On it you'll find a special code word - write it down.

Getting there: 

Head along Princes Street to the Exchange. Turn into Rattray Street then into Maclaggan Street. Ride up Serpentine Avenue for about a kilometre and turn right into Maori Road at a four-way intersection.

A Jubilee Park sign is about 100 m up the road on the right. There is a small car park on the edge of the playing field for vehicles.
