Queen Elizabeth Park Cycle Trail to Open
On Saturday, January 23, 2016at 10 AM - 2 PM the new Queen Elizabeth Park Cycle and Walking Trail (Te Ara o Whareroa) between Paekakariki and Raumati South will be officially opened in a ceremony at the Mackays Crossing entrance to the Park.
Following the formalities, there will a chance to enjoy food, music and activities for the family.
What to bring: Warm clothes, good shoes and a wind breaker, a bike to join the parade.
General parking will be in the paddock behind the Ranger's office. Please allow 20 minutes to catch a tram, walk or cycle to the event.
Tramways will be doing a great deal for the opening. For a gold coin donation per person per trip you can catch the tram down to the event. A great saving for families who don't want to walk or cycle down to the beach.
The northern part of the Te Ara o Whareroa Trail between Whareroa Road and Rainbow Court is already open to the public. Keen cyclists have already begun testing it out.
