A wonderful lap
May 2020
Great loop circuit to go for a jog, walk, or simply lie aside to look at the estuary. Wonderful views to the Mt Maunganui as well. My favorite place to run in the neighborhood.

Pramway
Feb 2020 • Family
Went along the estuary over a year ago for a stroll along the boardwalk and I thought there were some irresponsible cyclists thinking they had the right of way - 14 months on and we have had an addition to the family and all of a sudden people’s attitudes change when you are pushing your granddaughter in a pram. Turned out to be a nice walk. I still think a line down the middle would be helpful.

Brilliant scenic area to walk, run or cycle. 10k loop - which can be accessed at many places. Lovely when the tides in too.

No matter how far left you run, you will still get cyclist saying crude things to you as they bike past. Females beware of the old cranky men on their bikes

We usually take our dogs for a walk and there are some steps that go into the water that the dogs can swim in. The paths are easy and never muddy to walk along. You can walk the whole block around the estuary or just turn around when you want. Lots of tree's and water views.

Busy
Dec 2018 • Couples
This walk is very busy but I actually think that lines should be marked down the middle. Walkers are looking over their shoulder for ‘some’ irresponsible cyclists who go too fast and expect you to get out of the way. Much prefer this walk when there are fewer cyclists. A line down the middle would suit both users.

Whether along the harbourside or around the estuary there is so much to take in on this beautiful walkway. Really easy to access from the city and suburbs. If you add in the Daisy Hardwick track you skirt the entire estuary. Take a stroll or go for it its win, win!

Walk or bike
May 2018 • Couples
This is a great bike or walk. Bikers please use your bell when coming up behind walkers because depending which way the wind is coming from a walker may not be aware of a bike behind them. I always check the wind direction as 1 side is sheltered and the other side is open right next to the expressway. It is easier to ride & walk with the wind behind you than into it
