Most people feel the need to experience the outdoors and interact with the natural environment in some way. The Waimakariri District's parks, waterways and beaches play an important role in providing for this. Many sites have been protected or developed so as to encourage recreation and enjoyment, while conserving the qualities visitors seek when venturing into the outdoors.
