Kenton Track

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, 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:

  • Public toilets
  • Playgrounds, play equipment or exercise equipment in parks
  • The Botanic Gardens
  • Car parks within parks are closed for vehicle access
  • Visitor and information centres, i.e. Bottle Lake Forest and Travis Wetland
  • The Spencer Park animal area
  • Fenced dog parks, including Horseshoe Lake, The Groynes and Styx Mill Reserve. All other parks are available to exercise dogs in
  • All Council-owned sports facilities e.g clubrooms

Start: Either Rockview Place or the end of Major Hornbrook Road

Finish: Summit Road, near Broadleaf Lane

Distance: 1.6km

Time: 30 minutes one way

Dogs: On leash only


Climb the stile at the end of Rockview Place to access Kenton Track or join it from the end of Major Hornbrook Road. Follow the uphill track into John Britten Reserve and enjoy expansive views of the Heathcote Valley and back over the estuary. Take care along the latter section of this walk as it crosses the John Britten cycle track and ends at Summit Road, near Broadleaf Lane.

Kenton Track is so named for the middle name of legendary motorcycle engineer John Britten.
