Part of our Pakuranga Loop Walk is along the Pakuranga Rotary Walkway which currently extends to Pigeon Mountain, along the Tamaki Estuary and Whakaaranga Creek.
It is a safe cycling, jogging and walking route. The walkway is paved and relatively flat, making it suitable for wheelchairs, pushchairs and a range of fitness levels. The walkway along the estuary is safe for family cycling.
The walking route is also great for prams/buggies and dog walkers (on leash). There is an off leash dog exercise area –
along the Pakuranga Rotary Walkway between the Panmure Bridge and Waakaranga Reserve which permits dogs off-leash under the owners control. This is a huge off leash walk but most people do not know about. This sign can be found at the entrance to the walkway at Kerswill Place. See Auckland Council dog rules.
These flat river plains were used to grow oats, hay and wheat up until the 1950’s. Pakuranga was then known as “the granary of Auckland”.
This walk section looks into the mouth of the Panmure Lagoon from the opposite bank.

Notice to dog walkers. WARNING! On the weekend someone left huge blocks of chocolate along both sides of the rotary walkway just before the wooden bridge at the pakuranga plaza end. I do not know whether this was accidental or deliberate though it looked very suspicious and I’m not sure if my dog ingested any – I had to force her mouth open and drag huge chunks of chocolate out of her throat! There certainly must have been more than a king size block strewn up both sides of the path and it was the dark energy type. Certainly enough to kill even a large size dog!
Thanks for the information Sam. I have also posted your comment on our Facebook page. Helen
