It is a great family friendly destination with a pitch and putt/mini putt golf facility on the Callum Brae side of the park which is very popular over the summer months. Beside this is a large adventure playground with some exciting play equipment not found at any other parks in the city. Bounding the playground is an area of wide open sports fields which include an off-lead dog exercise.
The Kirikiriroa Stream runs along the bottom of the gully area of Tauhara Park and includes a walkway/cycleway path, an easy link for people to get from Rototuna into Chartwell without having to be near busy roads. At times, these pathways surrounded by native bush, seem a world away from the hustle and bustle of a large city.
