Our aim is simple – to encourage you to make walking to school, work, meetings, sports games, etc part of your daily routine. Walking helps keep you active.
It’s safe, costs nothing (depending if you stop for a coffee or not!), can be social and can be done almost anywhere at any time.
Not only is walking fun and sociable, with the growth of higher density communities, increase in traffic congestion and environmental concerns, walking is becoming an important long term sustainable transport option.
You don’t need anything specific for walking, but you may like to think about wearing:
We have a number of walkways in New Plymouth - the Coastal Walkway, Barrett Domain Walkway, Te Henui Walkway, Mangaotuku Walkway, Waiwhakaiho Walkway, Mangati Walkway and Huatoki Walkway, as well as tracks around lakes Rotomanu and Mangamahoe.
