About the path

An easy and flat circuit of the sports fields at Ken Maunder. The path takes in coastal views and an exercise circuit.

The best way to get to the park is across the bridge from Queen Mary Avenue where you can walk or ride over the Whau River.

In the centre of the path are sports fields which can be used to play with kids or friends - so don't forget a ball. There's plenty of parking nearby or on surrounding streets.

The path is flat, paved and suitable for wheelchairs. There are many places to stop and look over the Te Whau River with benches placed at regular intervals. Public toilets and parking available at Binstead Road entrance.
