Alex Ryder Memorial Reserve, Little Kaiteriteri
The Alex Ryder Memorial Reserve at Little Kaiteriteri is located between Rowling Road and the foreshore. It has become a popular place for informal recreation, picnicking, beach access and walking.
- Toilets (fully accessible)
There are grassed areas with picnic tables, ideal for family gatherings, a road leading to a parking area and beach access and toilets and changing facilities.
Dog Prohibited Area
Dogs are prohibited on this reserve during summer months (1 December to 1 March), except between the hours of 5.00 am and 9.00 am.
There are many places within Tasman District to exercise your dog, both on and off the leash. Dogs are prohibited in several beach and reserve areas, and other areas require leash control.
The reserve was set aside as a result of subdivision and was named in memory of former Waimea County Councillor, the late Alex Ryder, who represented the Motueka Riding in the days before the Tasman District Council came into being. Two other reserve areas have been added, one known as the Beaches and Bays area and the other is a wetland. Together they are collectively known as the Little Kaiteriteri Reserve.
The Little Kaiteriteri Reserve provides an important area of open space on the beachfront for all to relax and enjoy. It’s the perfect spot to experience the quieter side of Kaiteriteri.
