Located 6km off SH1, the 500 hectare park contains a working farm near the entrance at Paekakariki Hill Road and extends over the surrounding hills and into a pine plantation forest. Small, but significant remnants of the original New Zealand native forest stand close to the park's front paddocks. 

Battle Hill contains several loop walkways which are mainly used for mountain biking and horse riding.
