COVID-19 update on parks and tracks

The Government is asking for everyone to stay at home. Their advice is that you can go for a walk or exercise outdoors for a short time, but to stick to simple walks or exercise spots close to home. 

If using one of our parks, always stay two metres away from anyone not in your household. If you take your dog, please keep it on a leash at all times to help avoid contact with other dogs. Take your dog poo home and dispose of it in your red bin.

Where there are gates and latches in parks, please avoid using your hands to open and close them. If gates are off their hinges or left open, please leave them as you find them.

Cemeteries are open for pedestrian access only. 

The following are closed:

  • Public toilets.
  • Playgrounds, play equipment or exercise equipment in parks.
  • The Botanic Gardens.
  • Car parks within parks.
  • Visitor and information centres.
  • The Spencer Park animal area and fenced dog parks.

Trig V is a spectacular harbourside alternative to the Crater Rim Walkway for a short section above Governors Bay.

This gentle, undulating track takes you along the ridge of the Port Hills with breathtaking views across the water to the ranges above Diamond Harbour. Create a 30-40 minute loop with the Crater Rim Walkway or for those with good fitness and agility, you could head down to Governors Bay via Watlings Track - look for the sign when you arrive at the carpark.

The tracks in Ohinetahi are managed by the Summit Road Society(external link)You can find maps and more information about the area on their website.
