The McKenzie reserve is a relatively small area with walking track entrances off Great Barrier Road or Empire Road , which leads to Enclosure Bay. The reserve was a mature pine forest in 2006, 2007 where the pine trees were removed and natives planted. A new a picnic area was also created.

If you look closely at the map you will see that McKenzie Reserve has a short 'dog-leg' section on its western edge that meets with Coromandel Road. A rough walkway can be found leading from Coromandel Road into the reserve. This path is due to be properly formed in the next couple of years.
