Description

This is a useful shortcut and interesting diversion if you are doing the Northern Walkway or Trelissick Park tracks. It is easy to miss. It links Waikowhai St to Kenya Street.

There is a bridge across Korimako Stream (Kaiwharawhara Stream) with nice bush views.

There are several places of historic interest in the area. The Kenya St entrance to the bridge is opposite the famous clock tower, and next door is a large pioneer house owned by Colin McDiarmid photographer. For details of the historic places check out the sign in front of Ngaio Library on Ottawa Road (near the entrance to Cummings Park).

Getting there

The Waikowhai St entrance is about 200 m south of Ngaio station. There is a signpost saying "Waikowhai St 41 - 45" and "Pedestrian access to Kenya St".

There is no sign on Kenya St, but the entrance is almost directly opposite the famous clock tower at no 25.
