The old Coroglen sale yards on State Highway 25 by the one-way bridge have been turned into a park with a BBQ.
The first school in Coroglen opened on May 20th 1896 when the settlement was called Gumtown. At this time the local population were attracted to the area as gum diggers, kauri loggers and some as early settlers to establish farming blocks. As a result Coroglen today is mainly a farming and life style community. It still has a small country primary school with two classrooms to cater for years 1-8 and has a motto that reflects its community "from the land our strength" – a desire to be a sustainable enterprise. They encourage and model recycling, reducing and reusing. The children tend vegetable gardens and composting.
The Coroglen Reserve located on the old stockyards site (beside the Coroglen one way bridge) is a perfect spot to take a picnic or BBQ, and have a swim in the local swimming hole. Summer day camps are available at Rangihau Ranch over the school holidays and horse trekking is available for all of the family throughout the year.
