On a lovely sunny day nine of us headed down to Lindsay Park at Waipukurau and did the loop through Lindsay Reserve before following the pathway to the Lindsay tunnel. Most of us walked (very stooped in places) through the tunnel which is about 200 metres long. From the other side we could look up across farmland to Lindsay Road as it wound its way up the hill towards Waipawa. We then returned through the tunnel and back to the van and to The Forest of Memories to have our lunch.
The Forest of Memories is a Waipukurau Rotary Club project. Sited at the base of Pukeora Hill, the 10 hectare block was created in 1993 as a place for trees and memories. It is now a very interesting arboretum with a number of short tracks in it where you can spend an hour or so exploring.
After a walk through this arboretum we drove down the road a bit to Ashcott Road and walked part of the way to Parsons Road on the Tukituki Trai before returning.
Party: Glenda H, Susan L, Peter B, Denise & Lindsay D, Christine L, Janice L, John S, Steve B.
