About the path
A nice walk or easy cycle ride connecting two fantastic children's playgrounds in Point Chevalier and Waterview. It's great for kids and new cyclists developing their confidence.
You can access the path from either Waterview Reserve or Eric Armishaw Reserve (both have parking and public toilets). Whichever end you start at, there's plenty to do and kids will love the trip.
The path follows wide, sealed paths or boardwalks. There are a few busy roads to cross - use the dedicated bike and pedestrian crossing points and cross at the signal. Enjoy views of the harbour and marvel at the impressive engineering feat of towering motorway overpasses.
Spread out a picnic rug at Eric Armishaw Reserve, stay for a dip in the water or watch the kite and wind surfers. Kids will have a blast on the giant mouse wheel, climbing frames and tunnel slide at the playground.
At Waterview Reserve there's fun for kids of all ages with water play, an adventure playground, a skatepark and volleyball nets. Children with bikes can continue the fun at the BMX track, which has wobbly surfaces to practice on in a safe environment. There's even a coffee stop around the corner for the adults.
If you want to continue your journey, connect onto the Oakley Creek Path
or new Waterview Shared Path to the south.
