Northcote’s greenway – working title ‘the Awataha Greenway Project’ – is a key piece of amenity that the community has been closely involved in creating for over a decade.

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.

What is a 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.

To find out more about the greenway, including how you can get involved, visit the Northcote Information centre.

Greenway Masterplan

Where are we at with this project?

We’re currently designing the greenway. The design work is at its most advanced for the Schools’ Edge part of the greenway and the Greenslade Reserve and Jessie Tonar Scout Reserve improvements. These three areas will be built/upgraded first.

Who is involved?

Panuku Development Auckland and Kāinga Ora has been working with the Northcote Greenway Community Reference Group, the Mana Whenua Kaitiaki Project Working Group, the Kaipātiki Local Board and the three schools in the development area: Onepoto Primary, Northcote Intermediate and Northcote College.

5 greenway highlights

  1. A walkway to link home, school, the town centre, bus stops and parks.
  2. Green and pleasant places to meet others, play or sit and relax.
  3. A newly renovated Greenslade Reserve and a better, less flood-prone sports ground. 
  4. An outdoor classroom near Onepoto Primary and Northcote Intermediate. 
  5. The ‘daylighting’ of Awataha Stream – bringing it above ground and restoring its mauri (life essence).
