This track follows the Ōpāwaho/Heathcote estuary edge through Ferrymead Park, passing an important wildlife area managed by Forest and Bird.
A flat and gentle walk, keep an eye out for the wetland birds that inhabit the area as you pass through.
Be sure to keep dogs on a lead while walking this track as playful dogs who chase birds can affect the bird's success in breeding and nutrition.
