We walked along the prescribed route which in all is about 3 km. Lovely views of the bay with a safe walkway for pedestrians and cyclists. A very pleasant way to spend the morning.

This is so good particularly for families as it keeps the littlies away from the road, but they can ride their bikes safely.

Stunning at sunset. Really love the effort put into this space and how beautiful it is. There is information about how to help this space ecologically which we enjoyed learning about too.

We went on the 3.4km walk, experienced bush and trees on the perimeter of the estuary with a good number of inland birds, over the railway bridge for long views and then onto the estuary proper for close up views of sea/water birds, crabs and fish. Really pleasant time. Take water and wear a hat - it was pretty warm... More

We walk around the pond twice a week and always see lots of bird life and it so peaceful with everyone saying hello when they are coming the other way. Its a must do when in Napier take in the beauty and peace.

This is a favoured place for an afternoon walk or as part of a run. Off the road, good surface, keep an eye out for birdlife; spoonbills, gannets, shags, oyster catchers, seagulls, herons, plus random geese

This little gem, is an easy stroll for anyone. The kids will love it as it is only about a 45 minute walk. Along the way you can view seabirds in their natural habitat. It is quite a tidal area so shellfish can be seen when the tide is out. Informative signs have been strategically placed to help you identify... More
