Centennial Park (formerly known as the Rotorua Tree Trust) consists of 20 hectares of rolling land with a number of steep gullies. The concept behind the development was to provide an area of land in order for people to dedicate trees to family members or local dignitaries.

There have been a variety of developments within the area including the additions of a BBQ, toilets, picnic tables, Maple Grove and the Peace Memorial.

The reserve is being established as a rural reserve which means the area will not be under rigorous maintenance, but will be grazed where appropriate and preserved in other areas. Ultimately, the tree growth will establish woodland type conditions.
