COVID-19 update on parks and tracks

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, but to stick to simple walks or exercise spots close to home. 

If using one of our parks, always stay two metres away from anyone not in your household. If you take your dog, please keep it on a leash at all times to help avoid contact with other dogs. Take your dog poo home and dispose of it in your red bin.

Where there are gates and latches in parks, please avoid using your hands to open and close them. If gates are off their hinges or left open, please leave them as you find them.

Cemeteries are open for pedestrian access only.

Bluebells in Little Hagley ParkStart: The corner of Harper Ave and Fendalton Road.

Finish: The corner of Harper Ave and Park Terrace.

Distance: 1km.

Time: 20 minutes one way.

Dogs: On leash only.

Access: Suitable for wheelchairs and strollers.

Description:

Starting at the corner of Harper Ave and Fendalton Road, follow the meandering river downstream and enjoy a scenery that changes dramatically depending on the season.

Visit in autumn to see golden leaves drift lazily from trees and return in spring for the incredible sight of daffodils and bluebells sprinkled across the grass as far as the eye can see.

For something a little different, detour through Millbrook Reserve via the historic Helmores Lane Bridge and re-join the park by crossing back over the footbridge on Carlton Mill Road.
