Take an educational walk with your community ranger team and members of the Kennedy Park WW11 Installations Trust through the historic tunnels and gun emplacements at Kennedy Park.

Participants will also have the opportunity to learn about and visit the ancient Māori Pā site – Rahopara.

One of the last remaining headland Pā along this stretch of coast in Tāmaki Makaurau.

Kennedy Park and Rahopara Pa are rich in stories from the past and we can’t wait to share some of those with you.
