Situated approximately 10 km north east of central Christchurch, adjacent to the coast, Bottle Lake Forest Park is a production forest and trees are felled and logged in a 30 year rotation by the Selwyn Plantation Board.

Recreational facilities include mountain-bike tracks, horse-trekking trails and walking tracks.

Bottle Lake Forest Park is planted with mostly pinus radiata and covers over 800 hectares of coastal sand dunes.

Awards
Developed from a farm in the early 1900's the forest expanded from coastal protection plantings to its present size. It is planted with mostly pinus radiata and covers over 800 hectares of coastal sand dunes. The combined area of these forests is four times the size of Hagley Park, and as such, forms an important asset to metropolitan Christchurch.
