Te Kohanga is the 97 hectare, recreation and conservation area of Pegasus. Work is underway to create a range of natural habitats so that it will once again support the variety and numbers of native plants and animals that once lived there. Formed pathways and boardwalks allow easy walking and cycling along this area.

The beautifully landscaped feature lake with its golden sandy beaches is very popular for swimming, kayaking and sailing. Try sailing with optimist sailing yachts, piccolos, single and double kayaks available for hire at the Pegasus Lake Hire Centre.
