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, and to stick to simple walks or exercise spots close to home.
When you are out, you must stay two metres away from anyone who is not in your household.
Parks and cemeteries are open for pedestrian access only, and where possible we have closed off park car parks. Please do not use any play equipment or exercise equipment.
The following are closed:
Start: Corner of Cashmere and Ferniehurst Street, Cashmere
Finish: Before the Ferry Road roundabout
Dogs: On leash
Shared use: Yes
Follow the Heathcote River from the base of the Port Hills all the way out to the sea. The river meanders through numerous parks and reserves making it an attractive walk or ride through the eastern city.
Create a walk out of your favourite or local section or set a challenge to complete the entire length.
Many sections are shared use so watch out for cyclists who might be sharing the path with you.
A couple of areas require you to walk on grass verge next to quiet roads, do take care and watch out for traffic in these sections.
