Three accessible shared paths

Working with accessibility specialists, local boards and parks staff are incorporating better ease of access in planning and design.

The following are three accessible paths which make for good days out:

Pakuranga Rotary Walkway runs from Panmure Bridge to Farm Cove and is mainly smooth and flat with a couple of short hills at the Ōhuiarangi / Pigeon Mountain end, plus a section of boardwalk and gravel. Park at Bramley Reserve to start your day, with easy access to toilets and a BBQ.

Keith Hay Park in Mt Roskill has flat paths which provide a pleasant perimeter journey through sections shaded by mature trees. There’s abundant seating, accessible car parking and toilets, and two playgrounds.

Tāmaki Drive has a shared pathway, and the part from Mission Bay to St Heliers Beach is particularly popular. It has stunning views across the Waitematā Harbour toward Devonport and Rangitoto.
