About the path

Churchill Park gives a farm like experience in the heart of a suburban area. It is a working farm that offers a great experience for kids.

At the lower points alongside the path is a stream that is home to long finned eels or "Tuna kuwharuwharu". These can grow up to 2m long. The eel is native to New Zealand and can't be fished!

The path offers pockets of establishing areas of bush, which you walk through.

There are many access points from surrounding streets and car parking opportunities.

The path is gravel in sections and requires some decent shoes.

This is not the path to start with if you haven't walked for a while.
