Whataupoko Reserve is 22.408ha. The park was developed in 2011 after Council purchased the land in 1992. Taking its former name the 'Langford Fallon Reserve' from its previous owners Mr Roger Langford and Mr Kevin Fallon. The land was then planted in exotic trees which are now well established. The mountain bike trails were developed in 2003 by a group of volunteers. In September 2005 Council agreed to change the name to Whataupoko Reserve.
The mature exotic tree species provide ample shade to reserve users and the uneven rough surfaces of the old farm tracks provide the perfect terrain for mountain bikes.
