About the path

This loop path is jam-packed with things to keep the kids interested. While you can begin anywhere, a great place to start is along recently restored Te Auaunga - Oakley Creek. This path features a multicultural fale, a gathering place for the community.

Play amongst the shade in the natural māra hūpara (Māori playground), which offers plenty of challenge for all ages and abilities.

There is a great bike pump track were kids can build their confidence before riding across the magnificent new bridge - Te Whitinga, over the Waterview motorway.

Turn left at the bottom of the bridge ramp and head along the south western cycleway, being sure to cross at the traffic lights at Maioro Street and Dominion Road.

Skirt along the edge of Puketāpapa / Mount Roskill where you can stop and admire the city on a basalt stone seat. The path narrows in this area, so be patient.

Along this part of the path is a skate and basketball court at Valonia Reserve and the sports fields at Keith Hay Park. Head back over another bridge over the motorway and pass by Mt Roskill Grammar and through the shared path on the side of the road. The path eventually connects back up with Mt Roskill War Memorial Reserve.

Other than road crossings the entire route is off-street.
