"Nestled on the outskirts of Masterton in the Wairarapa sits and extensive man-made lake and park created from derelict land. Though one destined to become a Disneyland-style 'Aquatic Playground', hoping to attract thousands of visitors, Henley Lake has evolved into a magnificent... oasis of a more natural kind. Living in a town far from the coastline, Masterton's residents greatly value this generous expanse of water, as well as the network of walking trails and the flourishing biodiversity found at Henley Lake. Thousands of visitors continue to be drawn to its beautiful setting, making it a focal point in the Wairarapa for nearly 25 years. The story of Henley Lake, told here by the community in text and image, acknowledges the early planners and developers, celebrates the people behind the scenes and highlights the present day popularity of this great asset.
