Stage One of Te Whau Pathway opens

Published: 12 October 2015

Three sections of the pathway, totalling 1.6km, are now open in Olympic, Ken Maunder and Archibald parks. Once complete, Te Whau Pathway will be a 13km shared path linking Green Bay to Te Atatū Peninsula along the western edge of the Whau River.

Whau Local Board is working with Henderson-Massey Local BoardAuckland Transport and the Whau Coastal Walkway Environmental Trust on the pathway.

The $29 million project will be completed over the next five to eight years, with work being carried out as funding allows. Whau Local Board chair Catherine Farmer says it’s great to have the first part of the pathway completed.

“The pathway showcases some of the river’s unique environmental and historical features and we encourage the community to head along to enjoy a walk or cycle.”

Iris Donoghue, who is chair of the Whau Coastal Walkway Environmental Trust, says, “The pathway is enjoying use from a great variety of people, and we are delighted that it is fulfilling a need and showing off the beautiful river.”
