Innes Common Reserve is primarily used for three sports – cricket, hockey and soccer. The park has four cricket pitches, a sports field, two hockey turfs and a half basketball court. It also has a large, modern playground and parkour training area, a barbeque area, and toilets.


With amazing views across Hamilton Lake, the park is a popular venue for organised community events, and is the take-off point for the hot air balloons in the annual Balloons Over Waikato event.
