About the path

Spanning 16.5ha, Sanders Reserve is a great place to roam outdoors with your dog.

Most dog walkers start this walk at the bottom of Sanders Road for easy access.

You can also start at the main car park by the pavilion and playground and follow the signs towards the dog zone in the south-eastern part of the reserve.

The gravel loop path circles around the fenced off-leash dog exercise area, and along the fringe of mānuka trees and native bush. After, your dog can enjoy a run around in the open green spaces.

Enjoy the stunning views of the Waitematā Harbour. There are plenty of park benches and a picnic area close to the main car park.

Keep your dogs on-leash when walking to the path entry point from the car park, and in areas outside the dedicated dog zone. Note: Sanders Reserve is not fully fenced - you need to keep your dog in sight and under control at all times.
