The community first discussed a greenway project over a decade ago. Many Northcote locals have helped to move the project forward and to influence the design of the greenway.
A greenway is a green ‘corridor’ designed to make it easy and pleasant for people to move around part of a neighbourhood or city. When complete the greenway will link several of Northcote’s parks and neighbourhoods to each other and the town centre.
Northcote’s new greenway follows the path of the former Awataha Stream to the sea. The greenway forms a network of parks, public spaces and quiet streets that provide a safe and healthy environment for people, plants and wildlife. Some greenways, including this one, provide for the movement and cleaning of water as well.
