The Ataturk Memorial Park is a great off-leash area that Lily and I go to almost every day. It would be great if some of you would like to join us! This is a great option to be combined with the Lyall Beach meeting at 4, for everyone who would like to get a bit of a walk in before the playtime at the beach. The Evans Bay play area meet up will still be on at the same time, so people have the choice of doing either, and then both groups can meet at the beach afterwards.
If we want to do a slightly longer option, we can add the Rabbit Walkway to the beginning of the Ataturk outing, but we can decide that on the day. This would mean backtracking about 200m on the road to Birkhall Grove (see map above). This would add another 20min or so to the walk (the Ataturk loop walk itself takes about 30min, this is without stopping/playtime). From the Rabbit Walkway there are great views over the airport/Lyall Bay, and the Ataturk Loop Walk offers sweeping views of the Harbour Entrance and Cook Strait. Both walks are away from roads and are off leash areas.
Either way, we will meet at the gravel car park area at the end of Bowes Cres, Strathmore (see marker in map). Looking forward to sharing our favourite walk with you!
