      Waiu Park is a joint venture between Hutt City Council and the Wainuiomata Trail Project (a group of keen mountain bikers and volunteers). The park is mixed use (mountain biking and running) and e-bike friendly.

      Trails range from easy climbs to technical down hills, and there are a great selection of beginner/family tracks and a skills area. The tracks are set in regenerating native bush and also a significant wetland area.

      Waiu Park also has a large flat grassed area next to the car park, with a shelter and toilet facilitates, which can be used for events. Bookings are made though the Hutt City Council
