Time to Explore Waimakariri

Published: 04-Sep-2019

It’s time to get your walking shoes on and see more of what our beautiful District has on offer by joining one of the walking festival events taking place this September/October.

We have collaborated with neighbouring Councils to be part of The Breeze Walking Festival again this year and have six featured walks in the District. These include The Forest Awakens Walk at TÅ«haitara Coastal Park, Silver Stream Reserve West Walk, Wookie Walk at TÅ«haitara Coastal Park, Twilight River Bird Discovery and Kaiapoi River Wellbeing Walk.20190903 - Ashley River

Grant McLeod, Greenspace Manager says, “This is a great start to spring with lots of opportunities to get families out to enjoy some wonderful walks and take in the beautiful Waimakariri scenery”.

There are also five feature walks in Christchurch that Waimakariri folks may like to attend including Dogs Day out in the Zone (Richmond/Avonside Red Zone), Gruffalo Explorer at Bottle Lake Forest, Pukeko Stomp at MacLeans Island, Generation Game at Travis Wetland and Adventure on the Te Ara Ihutai Christchurch Coastal Pathway Trail.

About half of the festival walks require bookings or you can join the other walks on the day. You can find out more here or pick up a festival programme from one of our service centres or libraries.
