This walkway runs along the waterfront and has ever-changing views. Get onto it at one of the many pedestrian access points located along the walkway. It is perfect for prams, bikes and skateboards. Your family can run, walk, cycle, scoot or skate along the walkway.
It goes through farm land, over a bridge, past lagoons and beaches. There are plenty of places to stop for a picnic. At Kawaroa Park, there's a playground and toilets. See here for more information.
