This the centre of New Zealand - sort off... It was used back in the day as a central survey point to do a geodetic survey of the country using triangulation methods and other fancy things.
All brainy stuff aside it's a great walk up the hill from Botanical Reserve. the track is steep, but 4-wheel drive style push chairs can make it up. It's a popular spot for exercisers. The view from the top is awesome and worth the moist brow.

It takes just 20 minutes to get to the top and you have an amazing view of Nelson. If it is a sunny day it is really nice.
The walk was quite short but I loved it there. I would recommend it for families and older people. The view is worth it.

Walk was nice enough but not all that interesting. View was good though.
Nice point of view at the top of the hill.

Short but a great view.
Nice walk - can be done with a stroller though a little steep at times. Excellent view over Nelson and bay.

Steep winding path leads to a magnificent view of Nelson and bays.
Nice short walk with view over Nelson City, circuit when starting at Founders Park and going back at Matai River.
Beautiful scenery. Very steep but short walk.
Was nice, not amazing. Not a must do.
Short but easy walk with lovely views over Nelson, the Bay and the Maitai valley.
It's quite steep (hard work) but worth the views when you reach the top :D.
