Recreational links

The strategy envisions the city centre being a key feature within a series of recreation and pathway loops. The popularity of the Te Henui and the Coastal Walkway have proven that simple pathways and recreational links are popular. Amplifying their use and interlinking various corridors and pathways will create loops that can intersect the city centre to encourage people to stop and linger.

Next steps

Step 1

Some recreational links can be achieved quickly with limited investment.  Identify quick and temporary safety upgrades and crossing points within roadways to support any loops. Longer term upgrades can follow as necessary.

Step 2

Work with collaborators through the review of the Pukekura Park Reserve Management Plan to establish the viability of new pathways and the reclassification of suitable paths within Pukekura Park to enable cycling and new links.

Step 3

Promote the established loops and new links to show people attending the events easy walking links from the city centre to the Bowl, TSB Stadium and future sports hub.
