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.
  • All Council-owned sports facilities

Start: Junction with Titoki Track.

Finish: Titoki Track, near Bay Heights, Governors Bay entrance.

Time: 20 minutes one way.

Toilets: Located at Governors Bay Hall.

Dogs: Prohibited.


While Titoki Track largely follows a bush covered stream gully, Ngaio Track offers a pleasant alternative route mostly along a more open ridge. If descending, you leave Titoki Track shortly after the junction with South Boundary and rejoin close to the end of the track at Bay Heights in Governors Bay.

Combine with Titoki for an interesting loop of less than an hour and a taste of what Ohinetahi has to offer.

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.
