Connecting communities to each other and to the river

The construction of Te Whau Pathway will restart again soon! Te Whau Pathway Project is more than just building a shared path. It is about making great communities even better.

The pathway, following 12 kilometres of riverbank between Te Atatu and New Lynn, will open up access to one of the most beautiful rivers in Auckland.

We celebrated World Car Free Day with these winning designs from our t-shirt competition! Entries were amazing. Thank you. The judges from our Trust selected their favs with preferential voting and this year the results surprised us all… with a tie for second place! How will you celebrate World Car Free Day? Biking? Walking? Busing? Working from home? Shout out to Whau the People for organising. Winners’ details to follow.

About the pathway

The pathway will connect neighbouring suburbs, connect two harbours via Green Bay, offer amazing recreational choices and lead to safer and more sustainable alternatives for travel. Pathways like these bring tourists and stimulate local economies. Above all, Te Whau Pathway Project aims to nurture a sense of pride, ownership and kaitiakitanga in the Whau River, one of the jewels in West Auckland’s crown.
