Great walk......on the flat and path wide enough to cater for walkers and cyclists. The Len Lye Wind Wand is a must see. We saw it on a very windy day so saw it as it’s best.

This walkway is a lot longer than we walked but the sections we did were beautiful. We walked to the bridge and the views were fantastic. A great thing to do on a nice day.

The walkway is beautiful but there could be more done. Maybe more seats for elderly or senior citizens. also create some more parking and a play area for kids would be a bonus

This is a pretty sweet set up, we powered along from Fitzroy Beach to the Rewa Rewa Bridge on a Sunday evening, nice flat concrete path that the kids could hammer along on their scooters and a nice little 40 minute round trip. The bridge...More

A must do if you come to New Pymouth! We hired a couple of bikes and biked the length of it. Gorgeous views of the ocean on one side and snow capped mountain on the other, Totally breathtaking in parts. The ride itself was easy...More
