About the path

Take a stroll through Point Chevalier, exploring Coyle Park, quiet residential streets and the picturesque beach.

Start your walk in Coyle Park, an open environment covering nearly 5ha which has fantastic harbour and city views. There's dedicated car parking, and Coyle Park is easy to access on the local bus route.

Follow the access path which leads from the car park area down to Point Chevalier Beach. Walk down the beach, the views are best when the tide is in, so try to time your visit! Splash around in the water with the kids, or pack a picnic to enjoy under the large pōhutukawa trees. Either way, you'll feel a million miles away from the city.

Head back to Coyle Park up Harbour View Road, Joan Street and Pt Chevalier Road.

The large playground and flying fox at Coyle Park are favourites with local children. There's heaps of room to run around and have an adventure with the kids.

There is a great off-leash dog exercise area in Coyle Park. The main grassy area provides plenty of space for dogs to run around, while you take in views of the harbour.

Changing rooms and toilets are available at Coyle Park.
