Beaconsfield Recreation Reserve


This 0.8ha reserve has a pleasant environment with a layout that stays true to its former role as a rural school. A number of former school buildings, including shelter sheds, are used as a community facility. The adjoining paddock is grazed and a small, fenced off patch of native bush has been planted by the community. A feature is the attractive mature trees, including a large totara which marks the south west corner entrance to the reserve, and a weeping elm.

The school house is identified in the District Plan as having heritage value Category C and at present houses a library serviced by the main library in Feilding.

The community looks after the buildings and grounds - they view the reserve as an asset to the area. It is used for a range of activites including tennis in the summer and the barbecue, built by locals, is used for district gatherings.
