About the path
An easy stroll or ride through Lloyd Elsmore Park in Pakuranga, with a range of activities the whole whānau will love.
The path is relatively flat and great for people of all ages and abilities. It's perfect for little ones learning to ride and develop their confidence on bikes and scooters.
Start at the main car park in Lloyd Elsmore Park. Follow the route past the Lloyd Elsmore Pool to the BMX pump track. This is a fantastic area to develop new skills in a safe environment. Older kids can test out their skills at the skatepark.
Turn left onto Bells Road past the football fields (public toilets are available here). Cross the road to join the path towards the Howick Historic Village.
Loop back up to the starting point, strolling through formal avenues of grand pōhutukawa trees.
During or after your walk, you can kick a ball around in the large open space, or enjoy a picnic under one of the shady trees. Small children will enjoy exploring the playground (close to the starting point) and watching the ducks splash around at the duck pond.
Afterwards, cool down at the splash pad or take a dip with the kids at the Lloyd Elsmore Pool (free for children aged 16 and under). Children of all ages will have a blast playing in the fountains and mist sprayers at the splash pad - and the landscaped picnic area is perfect for families to come together and relax.
