Event description
Thanks to AT, Got To Get Out is hosting a series of free outdoor events to encourage our community to explore Auckland on foot or bike!

About this event

Have you #gottogetout and explore Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland?

Thanks to Auckland Transport, Got To Get Out is hosting a series of free outdoor events to encourage our community to try walking & cycling for getting to work / school / leisure.

We’re also profiling new cycleways and commuter routes, and showcasing public transport options like bus and trains as a great way to get to your adventures.

About your free guided activity:

For this free walk, we are starting on Ponsonby Road then heading to the newly developed safe-walking and cycling route from Grey Lynn Park to Cox's Bay Reserve.

From Ponsonby rd (meeting point) we will officially start at Williamson Ave and head through Grey Lynn Park - a popular family park with plenty of fun activities on offer.

After Grey Lynn Park, head up Dryden Street. Turn left into Cockburn Street and cruise through Hakanoa Reserve, following the path until you reach the Richmond Road shops. If you've worked up an appetite, this is a perfect mid-way stopping point for a coffee and bite to eat.

We will enter Hukanui Reserve and keep going until you reach Cox's Bay Reserve.

You can choose to turn around and come back to the start line, or make your way home at this point,
