About the path
This route through the residential streets in Millwater connects children's playgrounds and green spaces.
Start on Bankside Road and head down Percy Greens until you reach Ridgedale Park. Follow the track around to the playground, flying fox and family picnic area. The park offers a learn-to-ride circuit for children to build their confidence on bikes, balance bikes and scooters. They'll love trying out the intersection markings, different textured surfaces and short pump track.
From here, stroll down Harris Drive, along Kereru Lane, then head right along the bush-clad path. Cross the bridge through Harris Park, and continue down Timberland Drive until you reach Millwater Parkway.
The footpath along Millwater Parkway is a pleasant walk alongside the bush. Check out the signposted bush side tracks if you have time to explore.
When you reach Botanical Drive, try out the fully-fenced playground further up the street.
Turn right and walk up Blake Greens until you reach Butler Stoney Park, a natural amphitheatre planned to be developed with fitness and playground facilities.
Follow the footpath up the hill and around the outside of the park. Check out the playground at Major Henry Greens and then Galbraith Greens for views over the Ōrewa Estuary and Hauraki Gulf.
