About the path

Enjoy a fun family walk along the water. With wide sealed paths this walk is pram-friendly and ideal for kids' scooters. It's mostly flat with only a few small hills.

You can enter the path from lots of different points around Panmure Basin. Parking is on Peterson Road, Lagoon Drive, Ireland Road or Cove Lane. The path is also handy to the Panmure Train Station.

Take the kids for a swim at Lagoon Pool & Leisure Centre, located on Lagoon Drive. There is a main indoor and outdoor pool, as well as a hydro slide which operates on weekends. Children 16 and under swim free.

There are three playgrounds along the path, which are bound to keep the kids entertained.

If you’re looking for a physical challenge, try the fitness trail with 12 stations. You can also continue to Maungarei / Mt Wellington and climb the maunga (mountain). Exit the path via Cleary Road and head towards Maungarei, this will add an extra 30 minutes onto the walk.

The north-western side of the basin is home to the Panmure Lagoon Sailing Club. If you head along on the weekend, you might spot some of the sailors training on the water.
