The Government is asking for everyone to stay at home. Their advice is that you can go for a walk or exercise outdoors for a short time, and to stick to simple walks or exercise spots close to home.
When you are out, you must stay two metres away from anyone who is not in your household.
Parks and cemeteries are open for pedestrian access only, and where possible we have closed off park car parks. Please do not use any play equipment or exercise equipment.
The following are closed:
Start: Akaroa Recreation Ground, just past the boat compound.
Finish: Ōtāhuahua/Children's Bay.
Distance: 500 m.
Time: 10 minutes one way.
Toilets: Akaroa Recreation Ground.
Start the walk just past the boat compound at the Akaroa Recreation Ground and follow the boardwalk along the coast.
The boardwalk ends on the narrow, gravel Children's Bay Road. Turn left onto Children's Bay Road and follow along the coast. While this road is quiet, please take care if you encounter vehicles.
Cross the white bridge and you will find a spot to look out over Children's Bay to the Akaroa township opposite.
