Evans Bay Dog Exercise Park PLAY & Lyall Bay Beach WALK

Come along to one activity or come to both!!!

Bring your dog!  Bring somebody else's dog!  Bring a pretend dog!  Or just bring yourselves!

This is THE social event of the week on the doggy calendar for our canine friends ...... enjoyed just as much by the humans.

At 3pm - Evans Bay Dog Exercise Park

Bring the balls, toys, frisbees and whatever else the pooch finds entertaining for a sociable romp and play session in the fully fenced Kainui Reserve grassy exercise area just for dogs!  One of us humans can do a takeaway coffee & cake run next door to Greta Point Cafe so that we can enjoy an afternoon tea while the pooches are at play. :-)

At 4.05pm - Lyall Bay Woof Woof Ruff Beach

We'll drive across to Lyall Bay for a pre-evening stroll, or playful romp if you prefer, along the beach.  The pooches can grab some fun sand action and get the paws wet!

 

See you there!

    Hi Barbara, many thanks for the 'rabbit walkway' info - looks great! What we might do is add this to the Ataturk Memorial Walk already up as an event and give it a weekend date and time on the Walkies! calendar. As you say, that then gives people the option of a short or longer walk. We will put the Rabbit Walkway up as a separate week day walk event too, at the time that suits you, if you don't mind others joining you and Lily. :-)

      Tania, I couldn't find the Ataturk Memorial Walk in Upcoming Meetups? Apart form this upcoming weekend my weekends til end of September are pretty much full at this stage, so I might not be able to join in if it is set for a date in Sept. But that's ok, we can always do it again at a later stage :), If you do want to combine the rabbit walk with the Ataturk one, it makes sense to do the rabbit walk first though, otherwise it's a pretty steep climb...Also it is a bit tricky to find the shortcut down to Ataturk Park if you don't know where it is. But I could maybe show someone that joins me on a weekday walk where it starts.

      For a weekday walk (start after lunch, finished by 2:30) any day next week would be fine for me at this stage, so if anyone is interested in doing the rabbit & Ataturk walk next week with Lily and me, just post your favourite day here.

    As discussed during our meet up, here some details about the 'rabbit walkway' near where I live. It's a 20-30 min walk away from roads up in Strathmore, overlooking the airport/cook strait parts of the way. There is also a shortcut down through bush to the lower part of Ataturk Memorial Park, so we could then add a loop there if people want to go for a longer walk. Here is a map of the area, starting point would be at the end of a small cul de sac called Birkhall Grove: https://maps.google.co.nz/maps?hl=en
    I go there with Lily quite often after lunch on weekdays, as it is walking distance from where I live. If anyone is interested in joining me on short notice, just post sth here. Or we could fix a certain day say next week that suits several people? Just post your favourite day here if you are interested, I am pretty flexible as I work from home, just have to have finished the walk by around 2:30.

      I am just waiting to fix in my diary some late afternoon Italian tuition for weeks of 16 and 30 september. Once I have the 2 dates, we could do the rabbit walkway walk on those days before I go off to my lesson (which will start at 3pm)? Steph

      August 13, 2013

    • Barbara P.

      The week after the 30.Sept would work well for me Steph. Timing before 3pm is perfect for me too :). Just get in touch once you sorted your Italian sessions. Looking forward to meeting up again!

      August 13, 2013

  • Barbara P.

    Sorry i couldn't make it today. Looking forward to meeting the new doggie arrivals!

    In the meantime, here's a bit of dog related youtube you might all enjoy post your rainy walk. :)

    Thanks for the coffee run Tania! Abby got bathed and dried and fed. She is now snuggled on a soft blue blanket sleeping and making little barking noises in her dreams!

  • Tania S

    Thanks for braving the weather and coming along today everyone! Really lovely to meet you all and your very sociable pooches. The mud races were thoroughly entertaining, little Abby left the park more brunette than blond, and Lily's Kong frisbee had a great workout. :-)

    Lovely to meet you all earlier, despite the rather wet weather! Thanks to Tania for organising, and for doing the coffee run :) Steph & Doug, and Timmy & Saffi too of course

    Me too, in gumboots ;-)

    light rain here but I will still come down

    Hi - how's the weather down in Welly? It's awful up here in Paekakariki....of course, our 2 still need to go out for a walk, so we are happy to come down for the meetup, but just wondering if others are likely to pull out? Steph

    • Tania S

      Hi Steph, there has been light rain on and off in Wellington today but difficult to predict what it may be like at 3pm - will keep a watching brief on it :-). We generally run our Walkies! gatherings in all weather except really nasty storm/gale force wind conditions. I'm looking forward to catching up with everyone today, but it's completely up to individual members (& their pooches) if they'd prefer to stay out of the weather if it starts to look too unpleasant. :-)

      August 11, 2013

  • Tania S

    That's a bugger that you & Khan can't make it on Sunday Liz! Hopefully next time. We actually have a few members who work weekends and it would be great if someone wanted to set up a Walkies Meetup through the week. I'm sure there would be a few punters and pooches keen to go along! :-)

      Looking ok so far here in Miramar, and I am intending to go. But it's not exactly far for us...maybe we'll update a bit closer to the time.

      August 11, 2013

    • Stephanie L.

      let's do it come rain or shine - our terrible two don't care if they get wet! See you there :)

    Dam, I'm working :-( so I miss out.
    So if anyone needs to borrow a dog, hint hint lol jokes.
    Have a great time guys.

    August 8, 2013

  • Barbara P.

    looking forward to meeting up! Finally! Will bring doggie frisbee for the park, Lily is just starting to get the hang of it, but other dogs are usually way more interesting than the frisbee ;-)

    Hi Vaune, it would be great to see you and Major on Sunday if you can make it, but how about you post a Meetup that suits you, for whenever and wherever you like. :-)
    Just press the "Schedule a New Meetup" tab on the main page and go for it! I'm sure you will get some other members keen to join you. The more stuff we all put up on the Walkies! calendar, the better it will be. Cheers, Tania.
